Hannah Smith, a sophomore at Skidmore College, has been working this summer as an intern for ITNCoastalCT, a community-based organization dedicated to providing dignified local transportation for a reasonable cost for senior citizens and adults with visual impairments.
Hannah is only 19, in many cases barely a quarter of the age of the clients she is assisting.
The experience has been a moving one for her, and is culminating in an afternoon tea party she has organized at the Westport Center for Senior Activities which will be held on Aug. 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. The public is invited to attend. Her goal is to raise money for the ITN Road Scholarship program, which subsidizes rides for low income seniors.
