Howard University’s Alternative Spring Break

On Sunday, March 6, Howard University will hold a 12-hour fundraising effort on the university’s WHUR-FM radio station. The goal is to raise $150,000 which will be used to send as many as 500 Howard University undergraduate and graduate students on an “alternative spring break.” The students will travel to several cities, and possibly Haiti, to work on humanitarian projects during their one-week spring break in mid-March.

Listeners to the radiothon can make donations over the telephone or online at a dedicated page of the university’s web site.
