Olin College Alternative Spring Break 2019
This year, a team of 20 Olin students, coordinated by SERV, will spend their spring break working alongside Break A Difference, to provide relief and support in Texas to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. We need your help to fund this work!
Hurricane Harvey came ashore in Texas with sustained winds over 100 mph dumping more than 40 inches of rain that led to catastrophic flooding, property destruction and loss of life. This caused damage, particularly in low lying neighborhoods, that will take years to recover and rebuild.
Break A Difference engages individuals and institutions through service to make positive impacts in communities by large-scale service projects, preparing skilled leaders to serve on nonprofit boards, expanding the volunteer service capacity for nonprofits, and partnering with organizations to engage college students in week-long immersive service trips, otherwise known as Alternative Breaks.
Break a Difference has a participation fee of $450 per student. This fee covers lodging, meals, and transportation, as well several extracurricular excursions in Houston and the surrounding area. Students will also need to pay around $250 for airfare. Your contribution will help to offset these costs.
We are so excited to be going on this journey together - thank you for your support!
