Interested in helping people this spring break? The center for community service is hosting an alternate spring break trip for interested students. Students who embark on the trip will travel to a section of eastern North Carolina ravaged by hurricane Florence.

According to Matthew Blocker-Glynn, students will take part in a variety of community service activities including demolishing drywall, working with schools, and mucking. Students who would like to participate must be willing to forgo a traditional spring break in exchange for aiding those in need.

Although the trip fills out fast, there is still a chance to sign up by mailing CCS@hartford.edu. Blocker-Glynn requests that students send in a brief one-minute video detailing why they are a suitable candidate for the trip. In addition to this they may have to attend a brief interview with a member of the center for Community Service.

Although the current plan is to go to North Carolina, this was not always the case. Initially, Blocker-Glynn and his team had their sights set on traveling to Puerto Rico for the break. Although this would have been an amazing opportunity, it would not have been financially feasible.

The center for community service always makes sure that affordability is a priority when it comes to this trip. Blocker-Glynn stated that this year’s trip should only be $400. If you’d like to learn more feel free to pay a visit to the center for community service.
