At the recent Iona College Center for Campus Ministries special program - Go New Ro 2010 - over the course of a long weekend, a group of incoming freshmen learned they can be agents of change. Highlights of the mission included the students preparing and distributing sandwiches and clothing to the homeless in Manhattan, partnering with the Westchester County Parks Department for a clean up of Nature Study Woods in New Rochelle and visiting the New Rochelle Parks Department Summer School drop-in program. The mission concluded with a celebration dinner and a breakfast meeting with New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bransom and members of the City Council.
