Rumsey Hall student and teacher volunteers have accumulated 133 hours of community service during the month of September. The year kicked off with the new faculty installing raised garden beds at Judea Garden in New Preston, CT, which grows vegetables for distribution to community members who have limited resources. Our students prepared over 100 meals at Community Meals, a soup kitchen at Christ Church in Hartford, CT and visited Hammonassett State Beach along the Connecticut shore to remove hundreds of pieces of trash including cigarette litter, drink containers and bottle caps during the International Coastal Cleanup Day, hosted by the Connecticut Fund for the Environment/Save the Sound. For the final trip of September, students and faculty headed to Cornwall, CT to assist in the organization and running of the CROP Hunger Walk, which raises money in an effort to end hunger regionally and globally.
