Students at a La Crosse school are learning the importance of service and volunteering in our community.
Three Rivers Waldorf School started a new initiative called, "Waldorf Works."
The students are working with non-profit and government organizations, such as the Coulee Region Humane Society and the Merit Center Adult Day Care.
On Tuesday, a number of the students visited the day care with therapy dogs as a way to get involved in the community.
"I really hope that the students begin to understand the various ways in which they can get involved in the community and inspire them through the creative and fun partnerships that our school has with some of these non-profits to get them invovled as they grow up," said Three Rivers Waldorf School Administrator Justin McKnight.
Some other projects the students are working on are on the marsh trails and with the wafer food pantry.
