Save the Bay Swim
Every year, swimmers cross the Bay from Newport to Jamestown for Save The Bay’s largest annual fundraiser! There are lots of ways to support the event and celebrate the progress we've made toward a clean bay. Volunteers must be 16+ to work independently, and volunteers who are 10+ may volunteer accompanied by a parent. Groups of up to 25 people are welcome.

Working to support volunteerism
SAC works closely with Serve Rhode Island to develop a partnership and share our institutional visions for promoting service in Rhode Island. Staff have expressed an interest in participating in community service and in signing up with Serve Rhode Island as a volunteer.
Volunteer service is a wonderful gift; it can make a critical difference to a non-profit organization working to deliver programs and services under the heavy load of decreased funding and increased need. By giving an hour or two of your time and abilities, you can make a meaningful contribution to your community and to Rhode Island.
If you are interested, please visit their website at www.ServeRhodeIsland.org.
Click HERE to go directly the Serve RHODE ISLAND Volunteer Center, which will take you to a registration page. You will be asked for your name and contact information and, if you choose, you may answer some other questions so that they can get to know you better. When you register, please use your Brown University email address so we can keep track of how many hours Brown employees log over the course of the year.
You will also be given the option to join our Serve Rhode Island Volunteer Corps (Serve Corps). We encourage you to consider joining Serve Corps - this is merely a pledge to volunteer a minimum of two hours per month.
Once you have registered, you will be given your own home page, where you can search for opportunities, save those searches for future reference and log your hours spent volunteering.
Please feel free to be in touch with Serve RI should you
have any questions.
You can call us at 401-331-2298

Thanks again for being a part of
our community of volunteers!
