Volunteers and Students Have an “Out of This World” Experience

Volunteers and Students Have an “Out of This World” Experience

On November 15, 16 and 17, more than 75 volunteers from United Way of the Capital Region’s Bridges Society, Women’s Leadership Network and Tocqueville Society chaperoned 246 students from Thomas Holtzman Elementary School for a field trip to the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts in Harrisburg. UNITED FOR SCIENCE: BLAST OFF TO SPACE, powered by PNC, provided students an opportunity to experience the PNC Innovation Zone, Science Center and participate in a STEM activity while connecting with their chaperones. All activities were focused on space to coincide with the Whitaker Center’s latest exhibit.

For many of these third-grade students, this was their first field trip experience as the COVID pandemic prevented many outings. The students and volunteers had an amazing time together. Volunteer opportunities like this are one of the many benefits United Way offers to enrich the experience of our donors. Many thanks to PNC for making this event possible as well as Penn National Insurance for providing free parking in their garage.
