6th ANNUAL WCSU DAY OF SERVICE

Due to the challenges of COVID-19 in Danbury, we have decided to postpone the WCSU Day of Service until the spring. We will provide more information about our plans for the spring early next semester when we have a better idea of the status of
COVID-19.

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.

September 18, 2020 WCSU Day of Service Update: 

We are still planning on holding WCSU Day of Service on September 18. We are currently seeking volunteer opportunities with in-person and virtual activities for volunteers. These activities may be pods of students doing outdoor or indoor activities like gardening, painting, picking up litter, raking, cleaning, or reading to elementary school children. We are also seeking opportunities for virtual activities for volunteers and some independent activities students can do on their own and take to volunteer sites such as reading stories to elementary students or making masks.

We will keep you informed via this web page and email once we have sites available and activate our WDOS sign up link found below this paragraph. Student organizations can also sign up using the area below, but every volunteer is asked to complete their sign-up using the link below.  Please note that if you are under the age of 18 we would need permission from your parent to participate. Your parent could send a short email to diazv@wcsu.edu just stating your name, their relationship to you and that they give permission for you to participate in WCSU Day of Service.

Students, faculty, and staff will come together for our 7th annual Western Day of Service. Sign up coming soon to volunteer with one of the many non-profit organizations in our community.
