April 8, 2014

Approximately 120 students from Dordt College spent their spring break on service projects in 14 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. As part of an ongoing desire to make service a part of everyday life, these students chose to participate in a week-long mission trip with PLIA (Putting Love Into Action).

On March 7, students travelled to one of the following locations: Argentine, Kansas; Atlanta, Georgia; Camden, New Jersey; Cary, Mississippi; Chicago, Illinois; Cincinnati, Ohio; Colorado City, Arizona; Inez, Kentucky; Neon, Kentucky; New Orleans, Louisiana; Mendenhall, Mississippi; Shiprock, New Mexico; Denver, Colorado; and Toronto, Canada.

At the sites, students helped with home repair and painting, cleanup of grounds and facilities, and caring for or teaching children. They also cultivated relationships between Dordt and the organizations the groups served. Many groups also took some time for recreation and sightseeing.
