Volunteers Needed: Green Game Day

Leave a comment

This September 14th will be our first Green Game Day of the Fall 2013 semester. UConn’s Football team will be playing Maryland at 7:30 PM and volunteers are needed to help promote recycling. Volunteers will be picked up at approximately 2:00 PM at Sprague Hall and brought over to Rentschler Field. They will be provided FREE football tickets to get into the game. Volunteers will be paired up and assigned a parking lot to collect recyclables from and educate the fans on the importance of recycling. Volunteers will be provided dinner before entering the stadium. The bus will leave at half time for those who do not want to stay the entire game. Other student buses can be taken back to UConn for those who wish to stay for the second half.

Participating in Green Game Day is a great way to meet other students interested in environmental outreach and it is a very rewarding experience. Tailgaters greatly appreciate the hard-work of the volunteers and it serves as an opportunity to inform others on how to be more mindful of the environment. It is events like Green Game Day that has set UConn as a leader of sustainability and has enabled the university to earn a #1 ranking for Sierra’s 2013 Cool Schools Survey.
