Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts

A day to remember

Herding cats has never been as helpful as it was on the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. The campus community participated in the September 11 service day by helping the Nine Lives cat shelter move to their new location. The task was one of many service projects that included clearing property; cleaning up a trail; and conducting a personal necessities drive on campus to benefit local organizations. The Office of Service, Spirituality and Social Responsibility partnered with the Wheaton Staff Council, student clubs, and the Student Government Association’s new Service, Engagement and Activism Board to create several family-friendly service opportunities.
