6th ANNUAL WCSU DAY OF SERVICE

Thank you so much for being a part of WCSU’s Day of Service on September 20th – we had a record-breaking 900 participants that we sent to over 70 sites in Danbury, New Fairfield, Sherman, Brookfield, Bethel, Newtown, Redding, and Brewster! We hope that everything went well at your assigned volunteer sites.

Please save the date for next year’s Day of Service – Friday, September 18, 2020!

Additional photos can be found here.

Close to 900 volunteers helped over 40 not-for-profit organizations in the Greater Danbury Area. From clearing trails at a local horse farm to painting stairwells, sorting through donated clothes, cleaning, pulling weeds or washing fire trucks and ambulances, there was something worthwhile to do everywhere. Generally all volunteers had fun and organizations appreciated the help.

Tentative Schedule: (This is the 2019 schedule. Will update with 2020 information as we get closer to Sept. 18, 2020)

WCSU Day of Service begins with check-in, continental breakfast and getting your FREE T-SHIRT at 8 a.m. in White Hall 127. After a pep-talk by President Clark, all volunteers will gather for a group photo before being bused to the local organizations for three hours of volunteer service. Buses will return all participants to the Midtown campus by 1 p.m.
