Greensboro has been known for being on the forefront of issues involving racial and ethnic equality, sometimes resulting in nationally-known events. The town was a stop on the Underground Railroad, and on February 1, 1960, four black college students from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical College sat down at an all-white Woolworth’s lunch counter, and refused to leave when they were denied service. CHWC joins several community-based volunteer efforts in serving those in need.
Greensboro has an excellent mix of traditional work sites (painting, yard work, building rehab) and social agencies. Most sites are within 15 minutes of St. Paul’s, but we have one site that is far away (45 minutes) and is perfect for a bus of 50 people.
