The CNR Community Lends a Hand at Community Service Day 2011


At CNR, service is an essential part of who we are as community. Faculty, staff, students, and alumnae/i all joined in to volunteer at the College's sixth annual Community Service Day, which was held on April 6, 2011.

CNR hosted members of the Special Olympics from the Hudson Valley Public School Sports League, which is a consortium of middle and high schools from Westchester and Putnam counties. In the evening, students also volunteered at the Campus Ministry's monthly Midnight Run. From 8 p.m. - 2 a.m., students delivered food, clothing, blankets, and personal care items to the homeless on the streets of Manhattan.

President-elect Judith Huntington began her day with Meals on Wheels of New Rochelle delivering food to local residents. She chose to participate in this specific aspect of community service because the New Rochelle chapter was founded by Sr. Miriam Therese Peppin, O.S.U., who received her B.A. from The College of New Rochelle. Judith will be honored at the Meals on Wheels Gala in October 2011.
