UMass Dartmouth has organized a service project as part of the national day of service and remembrance this Saturday, September 12, 2015, at 1 p.m., through the YMCA Sharing the Harvest Community Farm in Dartmouth. More than 100 college and high school students are expected to participate.
All produce harvested at the YMCA Share the Harvest farm is given to local food pantries for those in need. This will also be a day of remembrance and celebration of the men and women who courageously serve our country. Dartmouth eighth grade student Skylar Samanica will perform “God Bless America” prior to the start of the service project.
This August more than 40 high school students from the SouthCoast took part in a series of community service activities as part of UMass Dartmouth’s newly organized High School Civic Leade rship Institute. The students' two days of service included a service project through the YMCA Sharing the Harvest Community Farm and a visit to the Edward M. Kennedy (EMK) Institute for the U.S. Senate in Boston.
