Several members of the Misericordia University Honors Program recently participated in a Day of Service at the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker Farm in Harveys Lake, Pennsylvania.

Misericordia University students and faculty who volunteered were divided into two shifts to work on the self-sustaining, organic farm that provides produce to people in need in the region. Misericordia volunteers harvested pinto and black beans, split wood and also tended to the animals on the farm. For their efforts, the farm donated two burlap bags of beans, about 10 pounds of green peppers, and 20 pounds of red cabbage for the Catherine McAuley Center in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
