MaryKate Farber ’15 is the Kenney Community Center’s Volunteer of the Week.

A resident of the Wells House community service theme house, Farber dedicates much of her time to sponsoring various charity events each week with her house, as well as volunteering elsewhere.

As a first-year student, Farber participated in the community service pre-orientation and returned to it this year as a student leader.

Farber is also the president of U-ReBloom, a club that gathers flowers used at a variety of campus events and delivers them to local nursing homes, senior residences and other facilities. “I love going because you are able to see how having visitors really brightens the days of the residents,” she said.

Farber is a History and Art History double major from Oneonta, N.Y.
