Wondering what you can do to address climate change and social inequities? Are you looking to make a difference here and now?

Sustainable Tompkins is looking for several volunteers to help us over the next two months with a number of events and media outreach related to our Seal the Cracks campaign to promote the Finger Lakes Climate Fund – our local carbon offset fund.

We need your help to make a big splash! We will be hosting a variety of fun events, and doing lots of outreach to local folks. We would like to see carbon offsetting be as much a part of the Ithaca lifestyle as recycling! Read the rest of this entry »

RED (Retired Educators Drive)

A new volunteer program, RED (Retired Educators Drive), formed to help connect parents of children in the Ithaca School District with drivers familiar with the district. This program was developed in response to the need to get parents actively involved in their children’s education by getting them to the schools for conferences and teacher meetings. This completely volunteer-based effort is designed to help parents who do not have easy access to a car. The RED program is the product of cooperation among many agencies including RSVP, ICSD, Ithaca Hours, Ithaca-Tompkins Transportation Council, Tompkins County Department of Social Services, Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI), Tompkins County Youth Services, and Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Way2Go program.
