Working For Worcester (W4W) is a student-led, volunteer organization based at Holy Cross. W4W would like to start chapters of this organization at four other colleges/universities in the city. Their main activity is one day of infrastructure building each April that brings area college students together with residents, businesses, non-profits, civic leaders and religious organizations to renovate and build recreational spaces across the city in an effort to increase recreational opportunities for children and promote community wellness. Past projects have included new playgrounds, basketball courts and dance studios. W4W will use this funding to enhance their infrastructure and expand their partnerships with other colleges in Worcester.
