Mizzou Students Coming to Springfield Nov. 14-15 to Volunteer; Need a Place to Stay

Twelve Mizzou students are participating in a "Mizzou Alternative Break" trip by coming to Springfield Nov. 14-16 to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House in Springfield.

However, the students are still in need of free housing on Friday, Nov. 14 and Saturday, Nov. 15 for the Mizzou Alternative Break trip. The two student organizers have been in contact with multiple locations around Springfield but have not yet found an option large enough for this group of 12.

"We were wondering if you had any recommendations on places to contact that may be able to house 12 people for both of those nights. We would appreciate any recommendation you may have, as we are needing to confirm a housing site as soon as possible," said Marissa Steele, an undergraduate student and a weekend site leader for Mizzou Alternative Breaks

The students will be serving at the Ronald McDonald House on that Saturday and Sunday.

The Ronald McDonald House will be hosting a fundraiser on the weekend of Nov. 21 and is in need of volunteers to perform various tasks around the house to get it ready for the event. Students will also be cooking a meal on the night of Nov.15 at the House at Children's Mercy Hospital for the families of the patients.

"We are very excited about this trip and the partnership with MU Extension," said Marissa Steele.

If you can help with the student housing, please contact one of the group leaders:
