MU Students Do Community Service Project In Trenton

Photo Courtesy of Dennis Browning Paint was spread with frenzy over the weekend by 12 students from the University of Missouri, who were in Trenton with the Mizzou Alternative Breaks organization and worked all day Saturday and on Sunday morning on a community service project at the Community Food Pantry. The interior walls and trim were painted in the Pantry, plus some exterior painting and striping on the parking lot. The project was recommended by Meredith Berry from the University of Missouri Extension office in Grundy County.  Mizzou Alternative Breaks has the largest program of its kind in the country.  The organization was started as an “alternative” to the traditional college spring break weekend. A goal of MAB is to reach every county in the state with a service project by 2020. About 50 weekend breaks are being sent out this year.  In addition to the work at the pantry, painting was started on the walls for the Church Women United’s Thrift Shop. This is a perfect project for another group to continue and complete. The paint has been purchased and all that is needed is willing hands. Interested groups and/or individuals are asked to contact Food Pantry President Dennis Browning at 660-359-6771.
