CT River Academy - Committed to Serving the Community

Posted by Lisa Cooney in General  |  Post a comment

A huge Shout Out! To Kiley Testa and CT River Academy Students for choosing Coram Deo Recovery – Sarah’s House – for your summer community service project. In July, approximately forty students and staff built a community garden and painted a fence for the Coram Deo Recovery organization. The project took about three hours and the work that was done was beautiful!

Far beyond the garden and fence was the bridge that was built between the two organizations. CT River Academy is committed to serving the community and teaching students to do so as well. Each year the Academy applies for grants specifically intended for community service and outreach. Although the Academy is in East Hartford, many of the students come from the New Britain/Berlin area, making the work with Coram Deo Recovery a great fit. CT River Academy Volunteers were matched to Coram Deo Recovery – Sarah’s House – through Urban Alliance, a non-profit organization whose mission is to create opportunities for people to achieve lasting change in their lives through the collaborative work of churches and organizations in the community. Coram Deo is a part of the Urban Alliance network.

The garden that was created will continue to give back year after year and for that Coram Deo Recovery is extremely grateful.

Nice work, CT River Academy Students!
