Mar 15, 2006

OLIVET, Mich. Olivet College is planning another service trip to support hurricane relief efforts in New Orleans. A group of 12 Olivet students and one employee will leave Wednesday, March 15 to assist with gutting homes in the Ninth Ward in New Orleans and return Sunday, March 19.

The group will stay at the Good Shepherd United Church of Christ in Metairie, La. Olivet students will be joined by a team from Illinois College, another UCC affiliate.

All cleanup supplies will be provided by the UCC and the cost of the trip is being underwritten by the college and the UCC Council for Higher Education.

Students joining Fales for the service project include: Eric Bryan, a senior from Fremont, Ind.; Terra Curley, a junior from Ganado, Ariz.; Andy Feuerstein, a senior from Belding; Katherine Fiero, a sophomore from Jackson; Tyler Goodnight, a senior from Midland; Dan Heasley, a junior from Byron Center; Nate Hughes, a sophomore from Marshall; Nick Johnson, a sophomore from Maumee, Ohio; Caitlin Kuch, a freshman from Ypsilanti; Sean McMahon, a sophomore from White Lake; Jill Smith, a junior from White Lake; and Levi Stegeman; a sophomore from Hazel Park.

Twenty Olivet College students helped with a week-long service project in New Orleans in December 2005.
