EMU Sets Mission and Service Days

Eastern Mennonite University will hold its spring “Mission and Service Days” Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 14-15.

Representatives from at least 10 church-related agencies will have displays in the Campus Center Greeting Hall through 4 p.m. Thursday and will be available to talk with students and area residents about possible service openings with their organizations.

Participating agencies will include Eastern Mennonite Missions, Salunga, Pa.; Mennonite Central Committee, Akron, Pa.; Mennonite Mission Network; Peace Corps; Washington (DC) Community Scholars Program; His Mansion Ministries and Virginia Mennonite Board of Missions

A special missions project, the “Kitz Blitz,” will run concurrently on campus with a goal of assembling 1,000 health kits to be sent to Mennonite Central Committee, Akron, Pa., for distribution to refugee camps.

An assembly line will be operating 9 a.m-4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday in the Campus Center Greeting Hall.
