‘Holy Cross student 1 of 5 finalists for Citizenship Cup’

NECN/Channel 3

January 23rd, 2014 by 



NECN/Channel 3 was recently on campus to profile College of the Holy Cross senior Jeffrey Reppucci.

Katelyn Tivnan reports, “A hockey player at Holy Cross, he is nominated for two prestigious awards – not for his skills on the ice, but instead for his work making a difference in the lives of others.”

“We take our work here in Worcester really seriously. It’s really cool to see recognition for the projects we’re doing and to see people getting excited about what we’re doing,” said Reppucci. “It’s really encouraging.”

In addition to completing his coursework, Reppucci has been running his non-profit organizations – Students Helping Children Across Borders and Working for Worcester.

As the founder and president of the groups, Reppucci says he is proud of the accomplishments they have made. “We’ve raised close to $125,000, worked in five countries, and have a leadership team for our projects, especially here in Worcester, of 77 college students around the city,” he said.
