Keystone College students traveled to Washington D.C. over their spring break to help out at the Community for Creative Non-Violence, also the largest homeless shelter in the United States. The group helped unload truckloads of mattresses for the shelter, and helped sort clothing for the shelter. They also ate lunch with the homeless at the shelter on their alternative spring break. On the trip, students were able to visit all the tourist attractions in Washington D.C. to round out their educational adventure.
