Trocaire Students Hold Art Supply Drive for Local After-School Program

With many community partners not accepting physical volunteers because of COVID-19, students in Trocaire College’s Mercy Action Project are finding new ways to give back.

This month, they are coordinating an art supply drive for the Seneca Street Community Development Corporation’s after-school enrichment program.

The Seneca Street CDC’s mission reads: “The SSCDC partners with our neighbors in the Seneca Babcock community to provide a supportive environment to overcome educational, social and economic barriers. We provide opportunities for the entire community to acquire skills that build resiliency and self-reliance, enhancing the quality of life and potential for current and future generations in neighborhood.”

Interested in contributing? Drop off items in the boxes around the Choate campus, or donate using the project’s Amazon Wish List. The drive will continue through Oct. 30.
