Spring Break Campaigns still are accepting applications from students to travel to 11 locations next spring.
Organizers say students who want to participate in a Spring Break Campaign should apply before Christmas break. Some of the groups leave on March 9 and others leave March 10.
“During Christmas break is the airline tickets finalize and is more difficult to add tickets or drop it,” said Jeremy Seal, secretory of the Spring Break Campaign.
Both ACU students and non-ACU students can participate in Spring Break Campaigns. Those who are not ACU students should read over the policy and fill out an application.
Spring Break Campaigns offer students a chance to reach out to others and learn about their lives, said Wilson White,Â junior history major from Ozona leader of the Chicago campaign.
“The Spring Break Campaigns are all about learning and serving,” White said. “You want to learn where ever you go and help serve and influence others.”
Spring campaigns will allow students to work with the homeless, children, churches and food pantries as well as spend time experiencing the different locations.
“Most of the campaign is doing homeless ministry,” Seal said. “We are going to work with single mothers, children’s homes and serve residents there.”
Even though every campaign is a little different, all participants get to know new people and are able to help others. White said he hopes his group will become close knit.
“We expect to become close group of friends,” White said. ” We expect to help other people and serve the best way we can. We want to help them and learn from them.”
Organizers are planning campaigns to:
- Anchorage, Alaska
- Arms of Hope in Quinlan
- Dry Bones in Denver
- Huntington Beach, Va.
- Salem, Oregon
- St. Paul, Minn.
