BonaResponds Fall break 2009 trip!

Good news! There have been no major disasters of late locally or nationally! EXCELLENT!

Now with that in mind, it allows us to think about what BonaResponds can do this fall break without pressure of having to get somewhere to help those in an emergency situation.

BonaResponds is staying local! That's right our fall break trip is to Western New York!

But before you roll your eyes and say I am not interested, consider that you will have the fun of a trip without the travel and cost!

In the past students have given the following reasons for going on trips with us:

  1. to help others in a time of need
  2. to have fun
  3. to meet new friends
  4. to hang out with old friends
  5. to learn new skills
  6. to build a resume
  7. to experience new things
  8. to save the expense of a long trip home
And guess what? Each of these is met and even better, we will be able to do it without sitting in a van for countless hours!
