In honor of Susquehanna’s Thanksgiving tradition and its enduring commitment to service, Susquehannans are being challenged to:

RETOOL

Susquehanna’s Habitat for Humanity team joins forces with area chapters to help low-income families retool their futures by building them affordable housing. In the process, the group raises awareness about homelessness locally and around the world.

If this service project receives 250 votes, friends of Susquehanna University have agreed to purchase the roof for the new Habitat for Humanity house being built in the spring!

 

RESTOCK

The Center for Civic Engagement at Susquehanna University works to develop and facilitate service opportunities for students. The center’s work includes partnerships with area food pantries. As the holidays approach, it’s common to find students organizing food drives to help these organizations restock their shelves.

If this service project receives 250 votes, fresh produce will be provided to Snyder County food pantries for a year, thanks to generous donors to the university!

 

RECLAIM

When Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, Susquehanna made a commitment to the region’s long-term recovery by establishing the Hurricane Relief Team, now known as GO New Orleans, a short-term domestic travel option of Susquehanna’s Global Opportunities (GO) program. While assisting with ongoing reclamation efforts, students uncover the history of the various cultural groups that make up this unique U.S. city. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, similar teams have gone to New Jersey to assist with clean-up efforts.

If this service project receives 250 votes, student trips to New Orleans and New Jersey to perform service work will be funded by Susquehanna supporters!

 

AND IF WE REACH THE INDIVIDUAL GOALS FOR ALL THREE CAUSES, SUSQUEHANNA WILL RECEIVE $200,000!
