In a Telegram & Gazette article, Jeffrey Reppucci ’14, a defenseman for the College of the Holy Cross’ varsity hockey team, discussed the service projects that helped him earn a nomination for the BNY Mellon Wealth Management Hockey Humanitarian Award. Founder and president of the 501(c)3 non-profit organization Students Helping Children Across Borders, Reppucci also founded Playing For Peace, which was a $25,000 community building project in rural Russia.
Currently he is organizing Working For Worcester 2012-2013, a day of service that will result in more than $50,000 of improvements to the community.
“The dream is to build Working for Worcester into a program that becomes a staple of going to college in Worcester,” Reppucci told the Telegram & Gazette.
