STUDENTS TO ASSIST LOCAL FLOOD VICTIMS


3/18/2005

Pittsburgh, PA -- It has been six months since heavy rains and flash flooding swept through suburban Pittsburgh communities such as Etna and Millvale. In cooperation with Hosanna Industries, La Roche students, staff and faculty will participate in the “Team-4-a-Day” initiative. La Roche volunteers will join trained professionals for minor home repairs, painting and cleaning in communities affected by the flooding. The College’s Office of Campus Ministry and Community Service is spearheading the effort, one that will replace this year’s Alternative Spring Break program at La Roche.

“I think that it’s important to help our own right now,” said Sister Marilyn Bergt, coordinator of community service. In the past, students who participated in Alternative Spring Break would travel to West Virginia and perform minor house repairs in disadvantaged areas.

The “Team-4-a-Day” program will run from Wednesday, March 16 through Wednesday, March 23 (excluding Sunday, March 20), which coincides with spring break and Easter break for La Roche students. <
