Hawk Hall Residents Will Travel to New Orleans for Alternative Spring Break
Eleven Hawk Hall Residential Learning Community students will be participating in an Alternative Spring Break (ASB) in New Orleans, La. The trip will take place during the University of Hartford's Spring Break from March 13 to 20.
The students will work with Camp Restore, a non-profit, faith-based organization that focuses its work specifically in New Orleans. Volunteers and staff rebuild family dwellings, churches and schools that were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, and also participate in numerous other restoration projects while providing emotional care to those in need.
Students will have the choice to work on labor-intensive construction projects or at non-construction worksites, which are divided into the categories of Human Care, Environmental and Service. These opportunities include working at nursing homes, child-care facilities, youth centers, homeless shelters and more. An exhaustive list of all the available sites can be found on the Camp Restore website.
The Center for Community Service is collecting donations to help fund the trip. For more information on how you can help, read a letter from the Alternative Spring Break team.
