We are a student volunteer organization that strives to make a difference on our week-long spring break, as well as year-long community events. Every year we plan four week-long spring break volunteer trips to different locations in need across the country, as well as smaller weekend or day volunteer trips to areas in the local community.
The money raised would be used to help fund our spring break volunteer trips we plan every year. It could help us lower the costs for our participants, through scholarships or trip cost reductions, so that it is more affordable for students to attend and receive the benefits of giving back to communities in need. In addition, the funds would be used to help purchase supplies for facilitation of trip reflections, participant t-shirts, and other supplies.
Donations are necessary because even though the funds we receive through the university or fundraising are helpful, they are not always adequate to allow ASB to provide scholarships to our participants or expand on our volunteer events throughout the year.
