Willamette Welcome Package Proceeds

One hundred percent of Willamette Welcome Package proceeds will go to the Take a Break (TaB) program. TaB is a student-run alternative break program that sends students, faculty, and staff to communities around the country to engage in service work during their spring breaks. Previous TaB trip participants have served in cities including: Portland, OR; Los Angeles, CA; Boise, ID; Seattle, WA; and Denver, CO, just to name a few.

On behalf of the Take a Break community, thank you for your time and consideration.

In Service,

Rachel Vermuelen & Lisa Field
