Twelve Misericordia students and three chaperones worked as street ambassadors and provided meals at the City Mission of Schenectady during a spring break service trip. They painted and organized the City Mission Thrift Store and assisted with Weekend Blessings, a food distribution program providing more than 800 backpacks a week filled with non-perishable food items for low-income children to take home for their weekend meals. Participants, from left, are: Kerri Cirello, social work major from Pompton Lakes, New Jersey; Caroline Thomas, a government, law and national security major from Dallas; Giovana Augustine, an education major from Shavertown; Abigail Parsons from Annandale, New Jersey and Thomas Scott, a chemistry and secondary education major from Huntington, New York.
