’Cats Trade a Day Off of School for Volunteering in the Community

By Quinn Western, social media and photography intern

‘Cats spent Monday making a difference in Chico by volunteering on their day off. Roughly 160 students took part in ‘Cats in the Community on Cesar Chavez Day, honoring Chavez’s legacy by giving back to the community.

JW Dobbe, the Associated Students commissioner of community affairs, said he received great feedback from all the sites where students volunteered. Community members said that the day was a lot of fun and they were very appreciative of the students coming out and making such a large difference, he added.

“It was a successful event,” Dobbe said. “One of the sites, Kentfield Garden, said it would have taken them 40 hours to do the work the students did in two and a half hours on Monday.”
