DANBURY, Conn. --  About 200 Western Connecticut State University students volunteered to participate in a Day of Service to assist Danbury residents and nonprofits.

The goal of the Day of Service was to help the community, to recognize WCSU students and their commitment to community, and to create an awareness of the opportunity and the value of volunteerism as part of a college education.

Among the places the WestConn volunteers served were Ann's Place, The Danbury Railway Museum, the Danbury Fire Department, Tarrywile Park and Ellsworth Avenue Elementary School.

"Students are looking at community service as something they expect their university to support," WCSU Dean of Student Affairs Walter Cramer said in a statement. "I see this event as a win-win - we can promote what's already happening and attract students who are interested in becoming part of community service."
