Working for Worcester Year 11

2012

From Idea to Reality

In the Fall of 2012, Holy Cross junior roommates Jeff Reppucci and Derek Kump decided that they wanted to step outside their campus gates and learn a more about the greater city of Worcester, MA. Thus, the inspiration for W4W was born: Reppucci and Kump launched an organization dedicated to mobilizing college students to improve recreation infrastructure and opportunities within neighborhoods across the city.

2013

Build Day Begins

On the first Build Day, Reppucci and Kump yet assembled close to 540 volunteers across 12 community recreation sites assisting the construction of 2 new playgrounds, 4 new basketball courts, a dance studio, a baseball field, a teen recreation room, a food pantry, a school cafeteria, new walking trails!

2020

Overcoming Covid-19

With the Managing Team trying to navigate getting sent home from school, Build Day was unfortunately cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, the team raised $23,240.59 for the Worcester Together COVID-19 emergency response fund!

2021

The "New Normal"

After a year with no playgrounds, Build Day Year 9 was faced with over coming the rapidly evolving Covid-19 pandemic, creating a Covid-Tzar role to monitor health trends. Nonetheless, 2 playground still managed to be built, albeit the smiles covered with masks!
