VITERBO STUDENTS GIVE UP SPRING BREAK FOR SERVICE

LA CROSSE, Wis.—It won’t be a trip to the beach or a visit with the family for several groups at Viterbo College over this spring break.  Students will instead be visiting various locations in search of service opportunities.

A homelessness class, taught by Tom Thibodeau, will take 15 students to Omaha, Neb. to work in the Dorothy Day Shelter where they will volunteer their time and effort to the homeless of the community.

Four nursing students, led by Sue Ernster, FSPA will be going to Mud Creek, Ky. to work with low income patients in a healthcare clinic.

Earl Madary and 10 other students will travel to Kansas City, Mo. to serve food in the Holy Family Catholic Worker House.  These students will prepare and serve evening  meals for 200-300 people daily.

These trips range in length from 3-6 days and students will be leaving throughout the week for their various destinations.

Viterbo has spring break from March 4 through the 12.
