BBA Freshmen Do a Day of Service
One hundred sixty-two Burr and Burton freshmen joined 26 members of faculty and staff at 22 different locations, for a day of service this past Wednesday, October 16. The freshman class spends a full school day in the fall to volunteer for dozens of individuals and organizations in the area. The benefits of helping others or working for a worthy cause is often one of the most rewarding experiences of their high school experience. Volunteering helps develop a heart for giving and foster meaningful relationships with our community.
Students helped senior citizens stack wood and do chores, cleaned debris from area rivers, worked on trail systems, gleaned produce on local farms for the food cupboard, assisted in area schools, worked at the library and at the town recreational department, did crafts with elderly residents, and helped manage farm animals.
All the students are thanked for their enthusiasm, teamwork and dedication to the various organizations with whom BBA has partnered, as they have forged new relationships in our community as well as doing much-needed work.
