In the Community

We are very active in our community. We hold events to help promote FIRST ®, encourage children to pursue STEM related interests. and to increase awareness and appreciation of the impact of STEM on our lives. We also participate in a variety of volunteering opportunities and charity fundraising because it's important that we help support our community. These events make up a large portion of everything we do.

Some of the community events we do are listed below.

  • We put up a display in our public library's display case featuring our team and FIRST ®.
  • Our team marches in the 4th of July parade.
  • We also march in the Memorial Day parade to honor our veterans.
  • We hold demos for several Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops.
  • Our team participates in the FIRST ® demo at the NY State Fair.
  • Several members volunteered at the local FLL regional.

We also do a variety of volunteering and community service. We have community service requirements for our team members to ensure that we are properly contributing.

  • We collect can recycle cans, bottles, and electronics.
  • We volunteer to help senior citizens carve pumpkins for Halloween.
  • Some of our members helped create a website for the Youth Ministry Program at Assumption of Our Lady Church.
  • Our team helped move Crafts, Bits, n' Pieces, a local secondhand craft shop, to their new location.
  • During the holiday season, we volunteer to ring bells to help the Salvation Army raise money.
