Safety Information from Cornell Police
Crime Never Takes a Holiday It bears repeating: be sure to lock up all residences (including shutting windows!), offices and labs on your way out, even if you are only gone for a short time .

Please help us out  by making sure doors and windows are securely closed and locked. Take steps to create the illusion of occupancy.

And, if you ordered something and are expecting it to be delivered, be on the lookout and practice good  package theft prevention .

Also, be aware of online scams. And check with Cornell IT regarding possible fake emails .

Wishing everyone a safe holiday and a happy new year!

Babysitters/Caregivers Needed During School Closings
Ithaca and the surrounding areas have blustery winter days that prompt K-12 schools (and some child care providers) to close. When school is closed, Cornell employees often struggle to find caregivers for their children so that they can get to work.

If so, please consider joining the Cornell Family Helper List by submitting an application, noting your availability and experience. Applicants are added to the directory online and contacted directly by the family. Rate of pay and terms of the arrangement are negotiated between the parent and the babysitter. For information, please go online or contact Work/Life .

FISH Needs Phoners and Drivers
FISH (Friends In Service Helping), a United Way organization that helps older adults get to medical appointments is looking for volunteer phoners and drivers – and you can help out starting at one day per month! How does FISH work? When a client needs a ride, they phone the 211 help line or 1-877-211-8667 and provide the necessary information. FISH has a schedule of monthly telephoners and drivers. On their appointed day, the telephoner receives requests that have come into the 211 help line, and then contacts the scheduled driver. Drivers then contact the client to confirm times and make pick-up arrangements. Most drivers volunteer for 2-3 days during the month. Many are on the "substitute list." The driver will drive the client to the appointment and either wait for them to finish or return to pick them up at an agreed upon time.
Volunteers will be fully trained, and if you are a driver, you can get reimbursed for mileage. Contact Beth McKinney at 255-3703 with questions .
Tax Volunteers Needed
Tax season is quickly approaching! Volunteers are needed for the Lifelong Tax Preparation Clinics.

And it can take as little as 4.5 hrs a week.

Tax Preparers  
Preparers use materials provided by the IRS plus a week- long training session delivered by experienced volunteers to pass the on-line exam required by the IRS. Tax Preparers generally work one to two 4 ½ hour sessions per week depending on their availability.

Tax Greeters
Greeters welcome taxpayers, respond to questions from taxpayers, monitor wait times, and insure taxpayers are matched with the right volunteer preparer for their particular return.  A minor amount of reading preparation from IRS supplied materials and passing a short certification exam is required. Greeters generally work one 4 ½ hours shift per week depending on their availability.
