Howard University students volunteer in St. Martin for “spring-break”
Students from Howard University (HU) in Washington, DC, spent their “spring-break” in St. Martin volunteering at institutions and foundations bouncing back from last year’s hurricanes Irma and Maria.
During their volunteer work the students from the historical university also met with the island’s people; visited the Mental Health Foundation; attended church service; and last week received a gift bag containing the book National Symbols of St. Martin from St. Maarten Tourist Bureau.
“I congratulate the organizers and students at HU and in St. Martin for participating in the Alternative Spring Break volunteer program, which is part of Howard University’s commitment to USA communities and global service,” said Marshall. (Photo courtesy: Sheila Marshall)
