CLINTON, NY – Some local college students helped make a difference this weekend by volunteering at various non-profit organizations throughout the area.

Members of the Hamilton Association for Volunteering, Outreach and Charity, or HAVOC, spent Saturday assisting 25 different local agencies.

One of those was the Clinton Pet Vet Rescue & Sanctuary, where members of the Hamilton girl’s rugby team helped out around the clinic.

Rachel Gramlich was one of those students helping out.

“I think it’s really important to go out in the community and give back. It’s also really nice to do it with my rugby team because it’s a good bonding event for us as well.”

Clinton Pet Vet Rescue & Sanctuary’s Mare Clarey says they really appreciate the students helping out.

“We love to have volunteers and people come visit us. Basically socializing and playing with the cats, which is really important to get them adopted.”

This marks the 20th year that Hamilton College students have gone out into the community to volunteer their services.
