Semester Wrap Up!

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Congratulations to Eastern volunteers and the Center for Community Engagement staff! The CCE hosted a total of 69 (both weekly and one-time) programs this semester, with 353 volunteers who served a total 2,437 hours in our community.

Last Fall, we had a total of 1689 volunteer hours served. That means we served 748 more hours this Fall. WOW! Keep it up!

As William James once said, "Act as if what you do makes a difference.  It does." At the CCE, we hope that our volunteers recognize the positive impact they are having on our community. Your hard work and dedication to service has made an impact on the lives of many!

                                from the CCE!

Busy December Weekend

Thursday, December 8, 2011

Who knew that the first weekend in December would be so popular for volunteer activities? This weekend was the Penguin Plunge, Mill Museum Gingerbread holiday, community garden clean-up, and tree planting.

17 Students took the plunge into Coventry Lake. They were "freezin' for a reason", to support Special Olympics CT. Together they raised $1,131.
