GREENWICH, Conn. -- Orquidia Moreno of Greenwich was one of 200 Western Connecticut State University students who volunteered for a Day of Service to assist Danbury residents and nonprofits.
Among the places the WCSU volunteers served were Ann's Place, The Danbury Railway Museum, the Danbury Fire Department, Tarrywile Park and Ellsworth Avenue Elementary School in Danbury.
Those helping the Danbury Music Center assisted with auditions for its annual performance of "The Nutcracker."
Volunteers at the Danbury Public Library tagged books, while others helped to serve breakfast to those in need at the Dorothy Day Hospitality House.
"Students are looking at community service as something they expect their university to support," WCSU Dean of Student Affairs Walter Cramer said in a statement. "I see this event as a win-win - we can promote what's already happening and attract students who are interested in becoming part of community service."
