Medaille College Students Complete Service Project With Black Rock Riverside Alliance
Medaille College students, led by those in Adjunct Professor Joseph Chimera's MGT 175 course, initiated and completed a service project with Black Rock Riverside Alliance during the fall 2018 semester. Black Rock Riverside Alliance (BRR Alliance) is a nonprofit organization that strives to improve the lives of people living and working in the Black Rock, Riverside, West-Hertel and Grant-Amherst communities. The students completed a project, which included planning and implementing a winter event that focused on the Black Rock community and allowed its families a chance to celebrate the holiday season in ways that they would not have been able to do otherwise. The Frosted Winter Wonderland Celebration was held on Saturday, December 8, 2018. Medaille student Nerissa Williams spearheaded the "Helping Hands Team," who worked to complete the project and developed the motto: "We volunteer to help others."
