Get Out of the Whee and Come to Philly!

Last Minute Production’s Alternative Spring Break in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is coming up on March 3 through March 10. This year’s trip will focus on three community service projects. These include helping the homeless, assisting people with disabilities, and organizing food for the less fortunate. The alternative spring break participants will also take in the sights of Philadelphia, including the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Betsy Ross House. There are still spots available. To register for the event stop by the front desk located on the second floor of the University Center. The cost of the trip is $80. “The event is a lot of fun and it’s a great opportunity to interact and meet a lot of people. It is good to see the difference I can make in the lives of others and how genuinely thankful they are”, said Katie Graunke, event coordinator and past participant. One of the philanthropy projects students will have the opportunity to participate in is Philabundance, which is a program that takes surplus food and distributes it to people in need. The program is sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Food Bank which collects, stores, and distributes the food to combat the increasing poverty and chronic hunger in southeastern Pennsylvania. Another service group that students will get to interact with is the Carousel House. This group provides recreation and education activities for people with disabilities. Volunteers have the opportunity to build relationships with people as they enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities.
