More than 200 student and community volunteers pitched in to spruce-up the grounds in and around Danville Community College as part of an annual service day coordinated by DCC and the Center for Community Engagement and Career Competitiveness (CCECC).

“This event pulled together staff, students, and faculty to bond as a team in an environment to work together and take pride in our neighborhood and campus,” said DCC Associate Professor Sandi Satterfield.

Organizers estimated the 432 volunteer hours logged during the April 26th event amounted to a financial impact of $10,985 for the community.

“This project brought out the best in our community and shows that when catalyzed as social change agents, we can do great things for the Dan River Region,” said CCECC Executive Director Dr. Billy Wooten. “We look forward to strengthening our partnership with DCC and offering more community engagement events in the near future.”

The CCECC supports DCC, Piedmont Community College, and Averett University through its outreach efforts.
