SERCAP's VFC Alternative Break Program Gears Up for its Spring Break 2020 Weeks of Service!

VFC-2015---Wilmington-NC---9

As March and April 2020 rapidly approach, SERCAP’s VFC Alternative Break Program is gearing up for its Spring Break 2020 Weeks of Service! Thus far, SERCAP has confirmed that approximately 199 students from three Colleges and Universities, including: College of the Holy Cross, St. Joseph’s University, and the University of Delaware, will be participating in this year’s Spring Break Week of Service, specifically by sending students to community volunteer sites in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Student volunteers will engage in a wide range of service-learning activities in communities across the Commonwealth, including: Town of Narrows, Newport, Roanoke, Town of Glasgow, Apple Ridge Farm, Town of Clinchco, Town of St. Paul, Town of Honaker, the American Legion Post #3, and the Allegheny Mountain Institute. In addition to providing 30 to 35 hours of community service during their week of service, each student will also make a financial contribution of $150.00, to the community they are serving, further investing in the well-being of the community as a whole.

Without SERCAP’s VFC Alternative Break Program, and other similar programs, many low-income communities would be forced to go without such necessities as community development and infrastructure needs, water/wastewater infrastructure solutions, safe and affordable housing, indoor plumbing, and more. It is important to remember that even in the US in the 21st Century; there are those who do not have reliable access to clean, safe drinking water, environmentally sound septic facilities, and affordable housing. In order to help SERCAP continue to provide assistance to both the individuals and communities in need, please consider making a donation to SERCAP’s Water Life! Fund!
