On Thursday, Oct. 18, The University of Scranton bookstore will be hosting the Thirst Project’s School Tour, a nationwide initiative aimed at educating and engaging students. The Thirst Project is a nonprofit organization working to raise awareness about the global water crisis and helping to build water wells around the world to generate and promote access to clean drinking water. A freshwater well in most developing nations costs as little as $5,000 to build, and can change an entire community’s lives forever.
We invite your classes to join us at the bookstore on Oct. 18, from 4 to 5 p.m., to learn more about this issue and the exciting ways students are getting involved to make a big impact! We hope to welcome as many members of the University community as possible in our store for the Thirst School Tour event so please share this information with each of your classes.
