Service Trip Opportunities 2018

Twelve years ago in August, 2005 during the first weekend of the fall semester, the campus and the country watched the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. The campus and the community responded by creating Livingston CARES to help in the recovery efforts.  Nearly 1,000 students, faculty/staff, community residents and alumni responded and participated in 40 service trips to Biloxi to help the people on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. This year, we have watched the devastation of three major hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Livingston CARES is again responding by establishing the 2017 Hurricane Relief and Recovery Fund to assist low-income families and communities affected by Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Please see below our planned service trips for 2018. Keep an eye on this page as more trips may be added as traveling to the impacted areas becomes available.

All paper work and registration fees for Livingston CARES service trips should be brought to the Center for Community in MacVittie 353 or 354.

If trips fill, we will accept additional registrations and create wait lists for each trip.
