Winter Repair and Rebuild Trips Recap

College students spent their winter break assisting in Texas 

During January, as much of the country was gripped by crippling winter weather, a group of students from New York University’s Bridges program were completing a week of service in sunny Central Texas. This marks the 5th year that JDRC (a program of NECHAMA) has partnered with Bridges, an interfaith Jewish and Muslim student organization, and for many of the students, alternative break with the JDRC has become a tradition. The students spent the week volunteering in Wimberley and San Marcos, TX, where back-to-back floods devastated the area in the summer and fall of 2015.
