Working for Worcester's annual Build Day was unfortunately cancelled due to the emergent COVID-19 pandemic.


However, we remained dedicated to completing these projects in future years. Additionally, Working for Worcester raised $23,240.59 for the Worcester Together COVID-19 emergency response fund with generous support from peers and alumni! Money collected was used to help provide short-term emergency needs like food and shelter, as well as to support organizations working with populations most vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic's long-term effects.
