IDE Launches Dartmouth Helping HandsCOVER home repair project on deck
"Dartmouth Helping Hands" is a new IDE community initiative where employees can use their "Volunteer Time Off" with a United Way Agency. The program seeks to further enrich Dartmouth's outreach with the local Upper Valley community. Half-day projects are typically scheduled once each term. IDE organizes projects with local non-profits and provides transportation and a meal.

This past fall, a group of Dartmouth employees spent the day volunteering with COVER Home Repair, a nonprofit based in White River Junction whose mission is to foster hope and build community in the Upper Valley by bringing together homeowners and volunteers to complete urgently needed home repairs for low-income homeowners, many of whom are elderly and/or disabled.

I Know a Man...Ashley Bryan Documentary Screening & Conversationashley bryan reading book
Over 80 people joined IDE for the screening of Richard Kane and Robert Shatterly's "I Know a Man ... Ashley Bryan" documentary this past October. The film is about this 93-year-old creative wonder who skips and jumps in his heart like a child. He served in a World War II all-Black battalion and experienced the racism of a separatist Army and the carnage of D-Day. As a result he dedicated his life to creating beauty and joy, spreading love and awe through his art. He's a poet/illustrator of over 50 children's books, makes magical puppets and sea glass windows from found objects inspired by his African heritage. Ashley lives on the remote Cranberry Islands, Maine and has been using art his entire life to celebrate joy, mediate the darkness of war and racism, explore the mysteries of faith, and create loving community.
