Spring Break Missions
YC Students Rolling Up Their Sleeves for Spring Break
By Brent Magner
Although the classic college spring break may conjure images of beaches and parties, several York College students are taking a different kind of break. A long time tradition of service projects and outreach continues this year with three brother/sister clubs headed for weeklong campaigns.
Two groups are targeting Colorado this year. Kingsmen and Omega Phi will be spending time in Littleton, a Denver suburb, to work on projects including assistance for a local food pantry. Just across town, Sigma Tau and Theta Psi will be working again this year with the Dry Bones ministry, an outreach to homeless in Denver.
Further south, Alpha Chi Epsilon and Beta Beta Sigma will be spending time in Texas providing some much needed muscle to prepare a camp for a summer time ministry to inner city kids and others.Vice President for Student Development, Dr. Shane Mountjoy said, “Spring Break outreach is a great time for students to be reminded that our focus is on Jesus and on other people. That’s a critical lesson in a “me” oriented culture, and it’s pretty hard to miss whenever students roll up their sleeves and get to work serving others. We’re blessed with a great history of spring break campaigns and great student leadership that makes it happen
