About a half dozen college students helped to spruce up the Barrington Senior Center on Monday, Aug. 26.
The students are freshmen at Roger Williams University in Bristol, which extended its ninth annual Community Connections program across the East Bay.
The program offers help to nonprofits through the region. More than 1,200 students, staff and faculty volunteered in more than 20 service projects.
The students dusted and polished, washed down chairs, and scrubbed the kitchen area around the senior center for several hours on Monday.
“We ran into some problems with our mulch and landscaping supplies,” said Senior Center Director Louise House. “So we put them to work inside. We are glad to have them again.”
Community Connections is now in its ninth year. It takes place while upper-class students move onto campus for the 2013-2014 academic year.
