Collegiate Challenge 2013

This week and next, we are holding our 2013 Collegiate Challenge! Our Collegiate Challenge is basically an alternative spring break in which students from certain schools can opt to spend their spring break in Athens, where they will spend the week helping us on a construction project for the community. Pastor Edward Bolen has allowed these students to stay at Milledge Avenue Baptist Church for the week, and we have been hard at work securing lunch donations for these students in order to give them a break from the construction work they are here to do! So far, Five Points Subway, Zaxby’s, and Jimmy John’s have agreed to donate lunch for these hard working individuals!

This week, 17 students from Westminister College in Pennysylvania are here (pictured above). They are working on building a pavilion with a playground for the community in between two buildings of our apartment complex on East Broad Street. Next week, we will be visited by students from St. Joseph’s College in Indiana.
