Fisher Cares Day had a low turnout this year, even with its many activities. This annual event was held on Wednesday Nov. 9 in Mainstage from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The turnout this year was surprisingly low. Residence Assistant James Bailey said, “It’s a tough day to hold an event because a lot of classes are on Wednesday afternoons. It’s a pretty busy time.”
There were different volunteer activities at Fisher Cares Day. Some of the volunteer activities were a table for making superhero kits for the young patients at Golisano Children’s Hospital, making cat toys for cats at Lollipop Farms, Be The Match bone marrow registry table, a Veteran’s Day banner for students to sign, and hospitality kit drive hosted by Multicultural Affairs.
Ward Hall Residence Director Josh Stone explained why they put on this event: “Sometimes it’s hard for students to get service hours in at a given service site so something that’s a little more schedule friendly and that’s still has an impact on the greater Rochester community is what we’re hoping to get out of Fisher Cares.”
