)-- Good Shepherd Volunteers engages young people in a dedicated year of service for some of the world most vulnerable populations. On Thursday, November 16th, Good Shepherd Volunteers will host, A Night at the Library to celebrate the service and impact of their volunteers. The event will be held from 6:30-8:30pm at Xavier’s Arrupe Library in Manhattan, 30 W 16th St, New York, NY.
“Good Shepherd Volunteers attracts recent college graduates who know they want to roll up their sleeves and make an impact,” said Diane Conroy, Executive Director of Good Shepherd Volunteers. “What volunteers don’t anticipate is how completely transformative this year is for their own personal development and it’s both the giving and receiving that we’re celebrating on Thursday evening.”
Tickets for the event are $45 and can be purchased at the door.
This event is proudly sponsored by Bruce & Victoria Bennett, the 1999-2000 Brooklyn Good Shepherd Volunteer Community, the Good Shepherd Sisters of Wickatunk, NJ and the Good Shepherd Sisters of New York. Beer will be provided through the generosity of ICONYC Brewery, as well as deserts from Insomnia Cookies and Martha’s Country Bakery.
