Alternative Spring Break – New Orleans, LA. March 18-24, 2013
Sign up will take place from September 1 - November 1, 2012.
Each year since Katrina devastated this vibrant and historical city, Mount Mercy students, faculty and staff have worked to help rebuild NOLA. We will spend spring break rebuilding people as well as places, from the impoverished Lower 9th Ward to the famous French Quarter. Spend your spring break helping to rebuild the people and places of New Orleans.
End of the Year Service Trip – Casa Romero, Milwaukee, WI. May 20-25
Cost: $125 (includes meals, travel, lodging and Saturday event)
Sign up will take place from January 1st – March 1st, 2013
This Urban Plunge experience will be a life-changing experience as our group serves the Casa Romero Renewal Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Participants will be taking part in serving children and families who live in Milwaukee, as well as working on an organic farm, assisting at a food pantry, preparing a meal for a homeless shelter, and a variety of other opportunities. Because travel will be light, we will also have a special Saturday tourist day, with activities to be determined by the group (such as a Brewers game or trip to Six Flags).
Be a part of this amazing opportunity to serve others, build friendships and share in new experiences.
