These tips came from Harvest Hope and were a bit different from the usual hurricane preparation ideas. Stay safe
everyone has an hour to spare! Why not use it to do something useful? We have a couple of projects that have been broken down into simple one hour tasks. You might learn something for sure you will be helping others be more efficient and accurate in the information they disseminate.
One involves updating a list of statutes for a SC Department of Juvenile Justice training manual
Another is updating pages in the SC Bar Ask a Lawyer Manual.
To volunteer just send an email to Pam Robinson Robinspd@law.sc.edu she will send you your assignment and instructions.
Why is Grace Chandler a Star? She stepped up in the Spring for a dull project- data entry! Yuck. The Pro Bono Program needed someone to enter the information on the Intake Forms from the HELP-Homeless Legal Clinic. This was a routine that required someone who could decipher lawyer handwriting and acronyms and Grace was up to the challenge. She would drop in between classes to enter date. What is extra special about our Star Volunteer! She is continuing this project this semester! The HELP forms piled up over the summer but Grace is here between classes and spading assignments entering data. For her dedication to this simple but necessary task Grace has been named a STAR volunteer by the Pro Bono Program.
Congratulate Grace and if you get a photo of her with her dressed up locker, please share
What is a Star Volunteer? A Star volunteer is someone that the members of the Pro Bono Program Board believe has jumped out ahead and just done a great job. It may be a small project, a one time event or just a difficult task that needed to be done and they stepped up with a great attitude. There is no regular pattern to this recognition. You can’t apply for it, It will happen spontaneously and without notice. Suddenly a Star Balloon and a sign appear on your mailbox announcing that you are Star Volunteer.
Information about what volunteer efforts you made will be posted on this blog. Enjoy your moment in the stars and know that you are being appreciated.
Did you know that you can reserve the study rooms with the red walls? Yup! Simply go to the Library homepage and reserve through their system. This gives you the right to gently “evict” anyone in the study room and also to let them know about this great system! Note: the Library will not enforce your reservation- they are librarians not ninjas! Be nice!
