WASHINGTON, PA (Sept. 14, 2018)—Washington & Jefferson College (W&J) students volunteered at charities and non-profit organizations throughout the Washington community as part of the College’s annual Week of Service from Sept. 11 to Sept 17.

The week kicked off on the National Day of Service, and students spent their time with the City Mission, Habitat For Humanity, Animal Ridge Rescue, Big Brothers Big Sisters, American Cancer Society, Bradford House Historical Society, Greater Washington County Food Bank, and more.

Their help was appreciated throughout the community.

“Having College students at City Mission is always good. We love having W&J students here and it allows us to get things done that we don’t normally get to do throughout the day,” said Cassie Defibaugh, church and community relations coordinator with the City Mission.
