Fall break is upon us (some of us) (me) (yay). As students head to Montreal, Boston, New York, home, random colleges in the northeast where that one friend from high school goes, some of us will be staying on campus. For those of you that are here, tomorrow is the first VT Clean Up Day. From the website:
“In the Vermont spirit of neighbor helping neighbor, Clean Up Day is a locally-led initiative to assist individuals, families and communities affected by Tropical Storm Irene. It’s also an opportunity to start a volunteer effort or participate locally in your own community. No jobs are too small! Everything we do now will help Vermont prepare for winter.”
There is still a significant amount of damage from Irene, and Vermont communities need all the help they can get. If you are interested in volunteering or donating to the cause, their website is here. Additionally, Middlebury students are still organizing student volunteer work at go/relief.
