My Service Trip
Organized by: Chris Bender
I am writing to ask you to support my summer service project at Scranton Preparatory School. This June, I will be traveling to South Carolina for nine days with 24 other Scranton Prep students. Our service group will be working with Sea Island Habitat for Humanity on Johns island, the third oldest Habitat for Humanity in the United States and the largest in South Carolina. Although we will work hard building houses, our program is also based on education, prayer and reflection. We are going not only to serve, but also to learn about the causes of poverty, oppression and injustice, and how our life choices can impact these issues.
Each year we receive support from Scranton Prep community, but we rely heavily on prayers and financial support from others like you. Service to others and firsthand experience of hardships help to educate us in the Jesuit tradition of being " men and women for others". Your participation in this project will assist my development in this core Jesuit ideal. Any amount you could contribute will be greatly appreciated. Please support this goal.
Thank you for your prayers and generosity.
