Earlier this summer, more than 20 Information Technology staff members spent the morning participating in community service projects in the Brunswick area. The service projects were arranged by the McKeen Center for the Common Good, and staff met at the center in the morning to receive their instructions and break into groups.  Projects included:

  • Cleaning the kitchen at the Tedford Shelter in Brunswick
  • Cleaning the facilities, brushing and walking the dogs at the Coastal Humane Society in Brunswick
  • Extensive weeding at the Bowdoin Organic Garden at Crystal Springs Farm in Brunswick
  • Cleaning and organizing the ArtVan storage space in Bath
  • Cleaning, gardening, and animal care at Wolfe's Neck Farm in Freeport

After a busy morning of volunteer work, staff gathered for lunch to share their experiences. Many said that the work was dirty, interesting, and rewarding, and that they would be interested in participating in a service project again in the future.

Participating Information Technology staff universally agreed that this was a rewarding experience, and that a future volunteer project would be a good idea.
