WRC 2009

If you have a thirst to make a difference in the world, join the work of the Social Action Leadership Team (SALT), the Chapel’s social justice ministry. Students in SALT serve as the leadership team that invites Valpo students to engage in Christian service both near and far.

SALT selected “Shui 2 Go! Pipeline to the People” as the 2009 World Relief Campaign. (Shui is the Chinese word for water and is pronounced “Shway.”) The goal was to raise $15,000 to fund the construction of a water pipeline from a mountain spring to the village of Saihan in the Yunnan province of China. At the end of the campaign, we surpassed our goal by raising $16,015.78!

Get an update on what has taken place in Saihan.
