HU Alternative Spring Break Donations!

HUAC-GWDC is soliciting donations to support the Alternative Spring Break program. This program gained tremendous momentum in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and continued to expand when students refused to be merely sympathetic in the response to earthquake victims of Haiti. In response to the natural disaster, students spent their Spring Break working with orphans and helped rebuild a school in Haiti, launching ASB’s international outreach. In 2015, Howard University’s ASB program incorporated two new sites, St. Louis and Newark. The program sent over 450 students to Baltimore, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Detroit, Memphis, New Orleans, St. Louis, Newark and Haiti.

ASB is only made possible each year because of the generosity of individual donors and institutional partners who provide the support and resources necessary to ensure the safety and care of over 450 students across several U.S. cities and Haiti. Be sure to note the ASB program in the Special Instructions section of the PayPal donation screen.
Your generosity is appreciated!!!

June 25, 2016 4TH Annual DCHBCUAA 5K Run/2K Walk-Health, Hunger and Higher Education Community Fair The health disparities that exist between African Americans and other demographic groups are alarming and have long-term consequences for quality of life and life opportunity. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer -- the four leading causes of death in the African American community -- are largely driven by lifestyle. To increase awareness and education about prevention of these conditions the Washington, DC Metro Historically Black Colleges and Universities Alumni Alliance, Inc. (DCHBCUAA) embarks on its annual HBCU Run Walk Health and Wellness Fair. This community health initiative and fundraiser aspire to educate on living well, with regular exercise and proper diet and draw attention to the barriers that many people in our communities face in making healthy choices. Proceeds support students who are interested in attending an HBCU in Health/Sciences fields of study. Jim Vance, Grand Marshall
