March 2014: Spring Break
We had 59 college students from Marquette (Milwaukee), Marian (Indianapolis), Hope College (Holland, MI), University of Tennessee, and UC Berkeley here for their spring breaks the past 3 weeks! Some of the things we did:
-Tutoring, playing with, and talking with the kids in the afterschool program at Kelly Hall
-Having one-on-one discussions with the freshman reading classes at Orr (CPS High School) about the importance of understanding your strengths so you can find a job you like
-Going with the Kelly Hall kids to the Marquette/ DePaul Big East women’s b-ball final
-Going to hear Fr. Bob preach at the parish missions
-Help with the seniors program, a community dinner, a furniture give away, and the food pantry
-And of course….cleaning and organizing!
Here are some of our favorite pictures (thanks to Emily from Marian for her great photography)!
