For those of you who love community service WPU has great news. For the first time Peace is offering students an alternative fall break trip through The Appalachia Service Project.
The ASP is a home repair organization that serves in areas of the Appalachian Mountains, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky. The goal of this trip is to help provide warmer, safer, and drier homes for the upcoming winter season in the Appalachian Mountains.
“Now students can take things they learn in the classroom and really make a difference” said Samantha Pulley a sophomore at Peace.
The trip will be from October 11th to October 15th and is $100 per student which includes accommodations and meals.
Peace students are already excited about the trip and have positive things to say. “I think it’s great that we are getting involved in the community and helping those who are less fortunate than us” said Jonathan Woo WPU sophomore.
Participating in a program like this can be very rewarding and result in lifelong friendships.
“It’s a great and exciting opportunity to help others” says WPU junior Elle Egbert.
More information about an interest meeting will be coming soon from Lara Lee King, WPU’s Director of Leadership & Service.
