SUNY’s Got Your Back in Canton

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Tajahre N. Gray, a SUNY Canton Health Care Management major from Syracuse, helps prepare comfort bags for the Renewal House in Canton.

SUNY Canton joined a State University of New York-wide effort to assemble and distribute comfort kits for survivors of sexual assault and interpersonal violence. Earlier this week Amanda D. Rowley, Title IX coordinator, Farren C. Lobdell, health educator and wellness coordinator, and Amanda L. Deckert, director of Greek life, helped students assemble 25 backpacks for children utilizing St. Lawrence Valley Renewal House services in Canton. Each bag contained coloring books, toys, toiletries, stuffed animals and snacks.

“We reached out to the campus community for donations, and we received much more than what we needed to fill the bags,” Rowley said. “We gave the remainder of the toys and any cash we received to Renewal House to supplement the backpacks.”

The college has a relationship with Renewal House, and holds fundraisers on campus, including Denim Day, a day in April  when faculty and staff contribute donations for the privilege of wearing jeans to work.

A group of dedicated SUNY Canton volunteers helped package donations into backpacks and deliver them to Renewal House in Canton as part of “SUNY’s Got Your Back.” Pictured are (l to r): Amanda L. Deckert, director of Greek life; Christopher E. Simms, a Veterinary Services Management major from Rochester; Jobany Calderone, a Homeland Security major from New Windsor; Amanda D.

SUNY Canton College Association Supports North Country Girl Scouts

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

The SUNY Canton College Association recently surprised more than 1,000 college students with a free box of Girl Scout cookies. Young women from Troop 328 in Russell visited Chaney Dining Center to distribute dessert to diners with a campus meal plan.

“Our students were very appreciative and very supportive of the scouts,” said Susan D. Law, director of dining services. “Michael J. Perry [executive director of the SUNY Canton College Association] came up with the idea, and we both thought it would be nice to provide great cookies from a great organization.”

Girl Scout Troop 328 recently served cookies during the evening service at Chaney Dining Center at SUNY Canton. Pictured are (l to r), back row, Troop Leader Amanda D. Rowley, Mallory L. Robinson, Kayleigh M. Allen, Emma L. Baker, Cadey G. Wheat, Troop Co-Leader Bridget L. White, front row, Hannah J. Butler, Madelyn E. Rowley, Faith L. Weaver, Annabell R. Butler, Harley R. Charleson, Macy L. White, and Rylee C. Typhair. Lily C. Lottie was not pictured, but attended the event.

Students were happy with the addition to their dinners and the unexpected guests. Some former scouts shared valuable advice with the troop, and others stopped eating to take photos with the girls.

Proceeds from the cookie sales support the area troop and can help the scouts donate items or food to community members in need, according to Troop Leader Amanda D. Rowley, who is the assistant to the vice president for administration at SUNY Canton.
