Chaperone an upcoming Spring Break Service Trip!
During Spring Break (March 3-10) a group of Marywood Students will travel to Philadelphia, PA to serve the community in a variety of ways. Partnering with the St. Vincent DePaul Center, volunteers will serve the homeless, work in a thrift store, repair buildings and visit persons with mental/intellectual disabilities. One more chaperone is needed to accompany the students and to assist in their preparation for the trip. All chaperone expenses are paid and staff may use Community Service benefit days to attend this trip. If you are interested in mentoring, serving and having an unforgettable and meaningful experience, contact Ann O'Brien by February 1. Phone 961-4593 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Wednesday night, February 1, 2012, Marywood University Women's and Men's Basketball Teams will take on Philadelphia Biblical University in the Mellow Center. All monies raised during this event, including admission fees collected at the door, and a 'donation net' will be given to Catholic Relief Services to provide malaria nets for children in Africa. According to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, nearly 1 million people die from malaria each year, most of them children in Africa.
