LA CROSSE, Wis. – Forty Viterbo University students will spend their spring break March 4-9 helping victims of Hurricane Katrina in Arabi, Louis., a suburb of New Orleans.

The students will be helping with construction and also cooking approximately 2,200 meals a day for the members of the Federal Emergency Management Association who are working in the area.

The project is Viterbo Campus Ministry’s annual spring break service trip. The university Student Government Association is paying the transportation costs and the participants are providing their own tents and sleeping bags. The students will depart from San Damiano Chapel on campus at noon, Saturday, March 4.

“I think its fantastic that our students would choose to spend their spring break helping others in the wake of this national tragedy instead of laying on a beach or doing some other leisure activity,” said Father Tom O’Neill, Viterbo vice president for Mission and Ministry.
