Support the last fund-raising event for USM’s Alternative Spring Break — the online auction.
Students participating in the Alternative Spring Break have solicited some great items for the auction, such as brunch at the White Mountains Hotel, dinner gift cards, handmade earrings, babysitting services, tickets on a scenic train ride, and more.
Check out all the items and learn how to bid at http://usm.maine.edu/community/main/asb.html.
Alternative Spring Break is a program that offers a chem-free trip over March break. Students will participate in a week of service in Pensacola, Florida assisting with the cleaning of the summer oil spill. The group will learn about ecosystems, watersheds, and how they are affected by manmade and natural disasters. Students will also educate the local community of these dangers. The Alternative Spring Break students will also be replanting important green life to the shorelines. Please help support this group of young, ambitious students and bid on these great items.
