The University’s campus ministry office will host its second annual “Snowball Roll” fundraiser, to benefit the alternative break service trip program, on Thursday, February 1, 2018, at noon, at University Avenue, on the University’s campus. This fundraiser is open to the public.

Participants can purchase “Snowballs” for $2 for a chance to win. Nearly 2,000 numbered balls will be rolled down University Avenue. The first balls to cross the finish line will win prizes, which include: gift cards to numerous restaurants and stores, themed baskets, cash prizes, and more.

The Snowball Roll fundraiser will assist students who will be participating in the spring alternative break service trips. For more than 20 years, the University has partnered with service organizations across the country and the globe to extend a helping hand and bring hope to people who need it most.

This year, Marywood students will travel to Philadelphia; Montego Bay, Jamaica; San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala; Houston, Texas; San Lucas and Chichicastenango, Guatemala; and Miami, Fl. The services offered include: hurricane relief, working to build infrastructure, conducting medical missions, serving those who are experiencing poverty and homelessness, and assisting young adults with physical and developmental disabilities.

To purchase “Snowballs,” please email, or purchase directly in the office of campus ministry. Participants do not need to be present to win. For additional information, please contact Ann H. O’Brien, L.S.W., assistant director for service learning and community service, at (570) 961-4593, or email
