More than 80 student-athletes headed to the YMCA of Trenton this spring for the fourth edition of the Princeton Varsity Club's signature community service event, Weapons of Mass Construction. The group helped refurbish the lobby, locker rooms, fitness center, and playground facilities for the Trenton nonprofit, which hosts a preschool and a burgeoning membership base.

Student-athletes from Princeton's football, women's soccer, men's ice hockey, women's swimming & diving, field hockey, and men's squash teams mulched, weeded, scrubbed, and painted the "Y" facilities. The event was a partnership between the Princeton Varsity Club, the YMCA of Trenton, and the United Way of Greater Mercer County.

For each of the past four academic years, the PVC has taken a large group of student-athletes off campus for a one-day Weapons of Mass Construction service project. In 2009, the group helped refurbish Mill One , a 6.5 acre site that is being converted by Isles, Inc. into a mixed use, green village. In 2010, the group built a 10,000 square foot garden that was formed to grow fresh vegetables and teach young men and women about the importance of farming. The group returned to Mill One in 2011, constructing an urban farm outside of the mill.

To date, more than 450 Princeton student-athletes, coaches and administrators have contributed over 1800 service hours through the Weapons of Mass Construction program. You can learn more about supporting this and other PVC initiatives by visiting www.PrincetonVarsityClub.org.
