Nearly 300 students turned out for the first annual H’ARD CORPS (Harvard Community Outreach and Public Service) event on Saturday. Breaking into teams, they worked on 18 different projects in Boston and Cambridge, including site clean-up, gardening, visiting the elderly, and helping the Greater Boston Food Bank and AIDS Walk Boston . The event was held in conjunction with IVY CORPS, which consisted of 3,000 students from all the Ivies fanned out to help in their communities.
