Athletes Volunteer Locally

October 3, 2012

Each year community volunteers make a big impact at local non-profits during the Addison County United Way Days of Caring. On Saturday, September 22nd, over 60 athletes from four Middlebury College athletic teams took time from their busy schedules to volunteer during the 18th annual Days of Caring around Addison County painting, cleaning, and providing maintenance support at local non-profits. Chris Steele ’13 from the Men’s Hockey Team said, “It was a great to get off campus all together while also giving back to the community which shows us so much support.” Bixby Memorial Library director Jane Spencer was appreciative that members of the softball team came with great attitudes and were hard workers and problem solvers.
