CLEARFIELD – Students from Lock Haven University’s Clearfield campus will be participating in a service-learning program in Morocco over spring break.
As part of that experience, they will be operating a health clinic and delivering lessons on topics, such as hydration, hygiene and nutrition to adults and children in villages in the Northern Sahara Desert.
The students will host a vitamin collection until March 7 at the main office of the Clearfield campus.
The group hopes to take vitamins to distribute to the villagers that they will serve as that part of the world faces several nutritional challenges that can have long-term consequences, particularly for children and pregnant women.
The group is looking for new and unopened bottles of prenatal vitamins, children’s chewable multi-vitamins or adult multi-vitamins. Donation boxes are located throughout campus, including outside of 119 Founders’ Hall and outside of the main office. Public donations are greatly appreciated.
For more information on the vitamin collection, please contact Dr. Amy Way at 814-768.3431.
