The Princeton-Blairstown Center is seeking volunteers for its annual Woodcutter's Weekend, which runs Friday, Nov. 22, through Sunday, Nov. 24, to help prepare its outdoor facilities for the winter.
The nonprofit organization, which was founded by University students and alumni, operates educational programs for urban youth and their families at its center in Blairstown in northwestern New Jersey. The center needs volunteers to help provide maintenance for its trails and grounds, chop and stack wood, and perform other tasks.
The center will provide free lodging and meals for volunteers, who are invited to arrive Friday evening for a social gathering before the service projects begin Saturday morning. Seats are available on a chartered bus that will depart Dillon Gym on Saturday at 7:27 a.m., and a bus will be available for volunteers wishing to return that night.
To volunteer or obtain more information, contact the center's administrative office at (609) 258-3340, or call the Blairstown camp at (888) 344-9763.
