NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) – Some college students in Nacogdoches will be spending part of their Christmas and New Year's break helping others.
Members of the Methodist Church Wesley Foundation's Nacogdoches branch will be leaving next week for Brownsville, Texas.
The mission trip will help residents still recovering from Hurricanes Dolly and Rita. Organizers say a lot of work can get done in three days time.
"The group will supply materials, so materials are already set up for us there. We're actually going to the work site ahead of time, so we'll know what we'll be doing ahead of time. We can actually plan that out before we get to the sight. And so with planning that's available through the group we're working with down there you can get quite a bit done," Richard Locke, mission participant, said.
Locke said finding volunteer students I never difficult. About 12 people are taking the trip because they like the idea of helping others.
