Close to 300 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: 

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. for a barbeque on the Fairfield Lawn.

To sign up, complete the individual sign-up sheet below. Student organizations can also sign up using the group sign-up sheet, but every volunteer is asked to complete the individual sign-up sheet. You may either sign up online or print the form and hand it in. 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 6th annual Western Day of Service. Sign up now to volunteer with one of the many non-profit organizations in our community.*

You could sign up to do a variety of different things such as raking, trimming, and/or weeding trails, sanding and/or painting, serving food, parking cars, registering dancers, cleaning offices, washing fire trucks, moving boxes, tagging books, working with animals, or picking up trash along the streets of Danbury. We are also looking for performers willing to perform at community centers, retirement homes, etc.
