"Having Community Day at St. Scholastica is terrific because it allows us to have that time to go out into the community and make the connection we wouldn't otherwise have made, as well as broaden our experiences and develop relationships with people and partners in our neighborhoods. I also think that it is very unique of an organization to have a community day and to have one that has been so successful for so many years. During my volunteer experiences, I noticed the people really enjoyed and appreciated the fact that we made it a point visit and spend time with them."
