Service Project Appalachia Holds Benefit with Hungry Howie's
Albion residents help Appalachia with a Hungry Howie's fundraiser Wednesday, February 15. All that day, Hungry Howie's will donate 10% of proceeds raised from customers mentioning Albion College's Service Project Appalachia (SPA).
"This is a tasty and easy way to support a group that is in much need of assistance," said SPA member Emily Stephens. She explained that SPA takes students to Appalachia over Albion's spring break, to do community service. "The work ranges from roofing and laying flooring to painting and landscaping. One year we removed practically an entire thicket of hazardous plants growing in the backyard of an individual who had received a community built home. We ended up laying grass see and giving this family a real back yard."
