Alternative Thanksgiving Break 2013 - Washington, DC November 27-December 1

What is Alternative Break?
Alternative Break is an intense service experience during one of BW's breaks. It is an opportunity to serve with fellow BW students, make new friends, make a difference, and travel to another part of the country and even the world. The focus on Alternative Break trips is direct service, reflection and education.


The Issues
The focus of Alternative Thanksgiving Break was hunger and homelessness. Thanksgiving is a time of celebration in the U.S. However, the holiday season can be a challenging time for those who are experiencing homelessness, hunger or struggling financially.

The ATB group served at DC Central Kitchen, Thrive DC and Loaves and Fishes DC.
