ServeUP 2018: Rebuilding Lives Through Building Homes

Info Session at MECA&D: Monday, November 13, 2017, at 2:00pm, Room 264

What is ServeUP: ServeUP is an alternative spring break opportunity where students serve together in areas that have been affected by natural disasters while engaging in dialogues about race, social justice, and faith. This year, ServeUP is expanding disaster relief in Baton Rouge, Louisiana as well as Houston, Texas.

Where: Students from Maine College of Art & Design are invited to join other colleges from Northern New England to serve in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Why: Baton Rouge suffered a huge flood in 2016 which destroyed about 110,000 homes. Although this flood was a historic event, it got very little media coverage. Because of the lack of resources, residents of Baton Rouge are still struggling to rebuild their homes.

When: March 9–18, 2018
