DANBURY, Conn. – Students at Western Connecticut State University will take part in the “Western Day of Service” by volunteering Saturday from 9-11 a.m.
Two hundred students, faculty and staff will help various charitable organizations and agencies throughout the city this weekend to help the community and show the value of volunteering during a student’s college education.
“We know there’s a lot of community service going on that involves our students,” said WCSU Dean of Student Affairs Walter Cramer.
“Students are looking at community service as something they expect their university to support,” he continued. “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.”
WCSU volunteers will assist Ann’s Place, The Danbury Railway Museum, the Danbury Fire Department, Tarrywile Park, Dorothy Day Hospitality House and Ellsworth Avenue Elementary School, among others.
