A group of Iowa Wesleyan College students will be volunteering to bus tables at the Mt. Pleasant Pizza Ranch, in exchange for the tips that will help fund their service trip. The fundraiser will be Wednesday, February 1, from 5-8 p.m. Students and college staff will keep all tips and a percentage of the restaurant’s sales that evening.
The funds raised will go toward the expenses of the service trip to Rwanda, scheduled for May 7-18. Nine students, along with faculty members, will travel to Africa as part of their Global Issues class. In Rwanda they will volunteer at a medical outreach clinic, deliver water chlorination devises to rural areas and volunteer at an orphanage.
Cost for the service trip is $2,100 per person. Funds were raised last fall through a baked potato dinner. In addition, the students are selling Pizza Ranch discount cards and t-shirts to help offset the costs.
