CSU students Walk for Water
Charleston’s eighth annual Walk for Water will begin downtown on March 22. The 3.5 mile trek will symbolize how far many women and children in developing countries travel each day to collect clean water for their families.
Students will receive Chapel credit for participating in this event. A team will meet that Saturday morning to leave from CSU and carpool downtown. Interested students should contact Julie Jongsma, service learning coordinator, to register — those who register during the first week of March will be able to purchase a team t-shirt.
On Thursday, March 27, Water Missions International will partner with Elevate to host an outdoor night of activities. That night CSU will host a local version of Walk for Water. Water Missions International seeks to be a Christian engineering ministry that transforms lives through sustainable safe water solutions.
The headquarters in downtown Charleston is open to volunteers who are able to serve lunch Tuesday and Thursdays from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Students interested in learning more or volunteering should contact Jongsma in the Brewer Center or visit theWater Missions International website.
