On Saturday, November 7, a record-breaking 133 Norwich students volunteered in the Sixth Annual Day of Service. That day, volunteers gave 798 hours of service at 14 different sites in 7 different towns: East Montpelier, Barre, South Barre, Berlin, Montpelier, Northfield and Plainfield.

Students raked leaves, stacked wood, built a fence, and helped move furniture for several local residents. They sorted food at the Vermont Food Bank, helped to renovate the Turtle Island Daycare Center’s playground, assisted at the Granite City 5K in Barre, assisted Community Harvest Gleaning of Central VT, tagged 500 pairs of socks for the upcoming Toasty Toes program for local seniors and veterans, assisted with winterizing Wrightsville Beach, assisted Montpelier Parks and Recreation by removing invasive species (Honeysuckle)/trail maintenance,  and assisted Cross VT Trail with trail-building.
