“WJC in Action” is a series that celebrates students, staff, faculty, and affiliates of William James College who are actively engaged in social justice, volunteering, and community service activities aimed at addressing the psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual needs of marginalized and underserved populations. It is intended to acknowledge the contributions of individuals, groups and communities that are meeting the need and making a difference locally and across the globe.

On Thursday, April 26th, Alison Weiner, Kathryn Thibedeau, and Eric Schlesinger gave a group presentation on a community service activity that they completed as part of their Systems Theory and Practice course at WJC. The group chose to organize a fundraiser for the “Read To Me” Program at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island.
