Day of Service commemorates 9/11 attacks
“I think it speaks to the mission of the institution and the values that come with that, the Benedictine values that speak to serving others,” said St. Anselm President Steven DiSalvo. The fact that the students put this together and are orchestrating all the activities on their own is paramount to the whole effort; it is not someone telling them what to do, it is the students deciding what to do, where they want to do it and how they want to do it.”
The service component has grown to include about 200 students who will help at 21 locations in the area — a healthy increase from the seven projects included a year ago. Alumni are becoming part of the day’s events, and representatives of first responders in Greater Manchester will be guests at an afternoon barbecue.St. Anselm students have matured in a darker world than their parents.
“Understanding the context by which they are going to do service has changed their lives,” DiSalvo said. “This is a moment they will not forget.”
“For me, St. Anselm College has shown me that there is good in the world,” she said.
