Happy St. Patricks Day from West Virginia!!
This was the last work day of the week, and the whole group spent the day at the Itmann Food Bank helping with the monthly distribution of food, clothing, diapers and housewares to families in need. Not only did they hundreds of families get much needed assistance, they also provided a listening ear to many people who just wanted someone to listen to them and hear their struggles.
This evening we shared a meal together with the students at St. John’s Catholic Church in Mullens and then closed the evening with a reflective look back and sharing about the week.
Once again we have been impressed with the quality of students who come down and spend their spring break helping others. Kudos to NIU’s Newman Center for putting the group together and preparing them for their experience. Also, a big thank you to the group’s leaders, Tia and Brian, to Dan for coming and sharing his home repair knowledge and patience nd compassionate self with the students. And finally, thank you to all in Wyoming County who made us all feel so welcome.
