Community Service Day is an annual event where Brunswick Upper School students lend a helping hand at day care and community centers, senior living and medical facilities, schools for special needs and animal shelters throughout Fairfield and Westchester counties.
Scheduled activities this year included a Midnight Run to N.Y.C., working with patients at Cerebral Palsy of Westchester (Rye Brook, N.Y.), visiting with the elderly at Nathaniel Witherell (Greenwich), helping to organize baby items for distribution at Mothers for Others (Greenwich), and re-organizing bookshelves at Greenwich Library. Yard work and spring spruce up was done at Edenwald Children's Residential Center, Greenwich Boys & Girls Club, Greenwich YMCA, Greenwich Green & Clean at Greenwich Point Park and Port Chester Head Start.
The boys also assisted teachers at Waterside School (Stamford), Edenwald Children's Residential Center (Pleasantville, N.Y.), Family Centers at Armstrong Court and Arch Street (Greenwich) and Anchor Academy (Norwalk). In addition, they helped with a variety of projects at Adopt-A-Dog (Armonk, N.Y.) and Wolf Conservancy (South Salem, N.Y.).
"Giving back to our community is important at Brunswick and it is truly the boys' honor to help others," said Johnny Montanez, Brunswick Upper School Director of Community Service. "We are proud of our young men for their dedicated volunteer efforts throughout the school year, and are grateful to the local organizations we worked with this year for allowing us to help them in some small way."
