This spring, ten Anna Maria College students spent their spring break volunteering in Conway, SC to help the local Habitat for Humanity chapter.
Joined by two Anna Maria staff members, student volunteers took on a variety of construction assignments in a Habitat for Humanity home-building project. Students spent time learning more about Conway’s Habitat for Humanity Chapter and have the opportunity to explore the surrounding area. This is the fourth consecutive year for Anna Maria students using their winter and spring breaks for volunteer service.
Those participating in the 2017 Alternative Spring Service Break include Massachusetts students Elizabeth Casella, Athol; Samantha Allison, Buzzards Bay; Kaylee Marshall, Ware; Lauren DiPillo, Canton; Liam Egan, Mendon; Kristan Richardson, Tewksbury; Matthew Braz, Milford; Bedelyne Dabel, Lynn; and Connecticut native Bryanna Tobin, Deep River.
