Hyde Summer Sessions Make a Difference in Their Community

Community Service had a full week starting with volunteer work Monday morning at the Hartford Market Foodshare.  Tuesday and Wednesday the group drove to Brimfield, MA to help in the tornado relief effort.  Still in dire need of help, this area was devastated in May when an F1 tornado ripped through homes and country side.  Students demolished a damaged barn and helped to clean up debris in an effort to support members of that community.  They spent Thursday and Friday working at Camp Quinebaug, a camp for kids and adults with special needs.  The students finished their week with a 5k benefit run in Newington, CT.  It was a great opportunity to work closely with others and have fun.
