Women's Soccer Volunteers
"MAIN SOUTH CELEBRATES FESTIVAL"
The Assumption College women's soccer team
volunteered recently at the Main South Celebrates Festival
organized and sponsored by Main South Community Development
The festival demonstrated a collaboration between all members of the Worcester community, including local residents, business/property owners, non-profit organizations and city officials.
The goal is to celebrate the many assets of the Main South community and to provide a venue for neighbors to unite. The area has much to celebrate these days: the Kilby-Gardner-Hammond Project, green initiatives, and the rich culture of its diverse community.
The festival highlighted the rich culture by offering an array of diverse vendors and entertainment, while also celebrating the neighborhood's commitment to Crystal/University Park.
The soccer team helped during the festival with two separate shifts of volunteers. They helped by face painting, blowing up balloons, picking up trash, handing out water and food, organizing the horse-drawn wagon ride, crowd control, directing people to different areas, and the breakdown and clean-up.
This festival allowed for our team to experience a variety of cultures and open our eyes to a new area of Worcester which we’ve never been integrated in. The team enjoyed helping out, meeting new people and emerging themselves in the community.
