St. Joseph’s College students, faculty and staff are set to serve for the College’s 2017 alternative spring break March 18-24 in Moore, Oklahoma.
The annual trip – organized by the Office of Campus Ministry – gives members of both SJC campus communities the opportunity to travel and dedicate their time to helping communities recovering from disaster. Communities across Oklahoma have suffered devastating damage from a series of tornados and earthquakes.
SJC’s group of more than 30 volunteers will collaborate with Serve Moore, an organization that has brought more than 50,000 volunteers to the Moore community since 2013. Last year, 20 students and staff members from SJC opted for an alternative winter break to Moore.
This year’s St. Joseph’s crew will pitch in on important construction projects, helping to build ramps and sheds for seniors, veterans and economically challenged families in the area.
The group will fly from New York to Dallas, Texas, and then drive to Moore, Oklahoma.
In preparation for the trip, campus ministry will be holding a version of “This Old Campus Ministry” in the back of O’Connor Hall on March 4 at 10 a.m. to address tool safety precautions and construction tips and techniques.
