We will be partnering with local organizations to help serve communities in the Houston area that were devastated by Hurricane Harvey. No construction/building experience required. We'll be flying to Houston on March 24th, returning to Boston on the afternoon of the 31st.
The trip is open to all students at MIT. You don't have to be involved in Cru to come. You can invite friends to come along as well. In fact, we encourage you to invite others to come!
Here are some important things to know, especially if you want to come for the lowest possible cost.
For the first 20 people who sign up, the cost will be $239
(MIT Cru will be covering all the transportation costs to get you to Houston and local transportation via funds we raise from Cru Alumni).
And if you would need more scholarship help with the $239 you can ask one of the Cru staff. Also, we will help you fundraise to help with these costs. Many people love to give to opportunities like this!
This is what is included in the $239 cost:
Round trip airfare
Lodging for 7 nights
Most of your meals
Materials needed for the week and conference costs
***If you register and pay a $59 deposit by December 31st, you will get $50 off your cost, so the total will be $189
***If you register and pay a $59 deposit by January 31st, you get $30 off your cost, so the total will be $209

Important: Click on the Spring Break link to get more info and to register. Be sure to pick week 4. And select "no" or select the MIT option (if it's listed) to the question that asks if you are part of Cru Boston.
We do have some additional scholarship money set aside to help those in financial need. Please email Chris at cswanson[at]mit.edu for more info.
How God can provide the funds to pay for the remaining cost of the trip:
Many of us have raised financial support to help fund this missions trip. Friends, family, and churches have been very enthusiastic about giving to help send students on our Spring Break trips. Basically, this entails sending out letters to people about your trip and asking them to partner with you and send you on the trip. We can give you information on how to do this. Anyone who wants to give can simply write a check to Cru or we will have an online giving link set up as well.
