Our countdown to departure to New Orleans is down to only 2 days! Here is a little more about our trip…
This will be UNM’s first Alternative Spring Break trip brought to you by the UNM Dean of Students Office and the Student Activities Center! An Alternative Spring Break Trip is where college students volunteer their break to community service in another community. UNM students will volunteer with the St. Bernard Project in New Orleans, LA to help restore houses for Hurricane Katrina victims.
We will be in New Orleans from Monday, March 14 through Saturday, March 19 assisting St Bernard Project with Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. St Bernards helps re build houses and lives of Katrina victims and have been nationally recognized for their efforts. To learn more about St Bernard, please visit their website: http://www.stbernardproject.org/v158/ or read their blog: http://stbernardproject.blogspot.com/. We look forward to working with them in New Orleans!
