On September 13, Quinsigamond Community College provided approximately 20 volunteers to work on five projects across the City of Worcester, during the United Way of Central Massachusetts Day of Caring.  Each year the event draws hundreds of volunteers, who help local nonprofit organizations with service projects.

The QCC volunteers painted porches, a teen center, cleaned out the basement at Elm Park Center and worked on pricing and stocking at the ReStore.

QCC staff members Selina Boria, Donna Harvey and Lucinda Costa served at the ReStore, which is run exclusively by volunteers. It was the first time any of them had participated in the event.

“We worked from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. pricing and stocking two pallets of lightbulbs. We worked really hard and had a good time,” Ms. Costa said. “Selina and I may see about going back on a regular basis. The ReStore is for Habitat for Humanity and that is something that I can get behind.”
