Alternative Spring Break 2022

Villa Maria Residence

Earn Service hours and have some fun. Join your classmates, faculty, and staff to help in our community:

  • We will be painting and helping with other tasks at the Villa Maria Residence. Life in the Residence is run by the Religious of Mary Immaculate and is oriented towards creating a family atmosphere where harmony and an attitude of reaching out, help to maintain healthy, lively relationships. Villa Maria was opened in 1954 as a residence for young ladies between 18 to 29 years of age. Villa Maria offers low-cost housing to these women who are working or attending university. Villa Maria is located at 719 Augusta St, San Antonio, TX 78215.
  • You can volunteer for 1 day, 2 days, ... as many or as few as you like. There are a total of 6 days you can volunteer, including one day before Spring Break.
  • The shuttle will leave the front of the McDermott Convocation Center at 8:30 AM daily, and return you to campus by 3:00 PM. 
    • If you do not wish to ride the shuttle to and from the worksite, you can meet us at the Villa Maria Residence at 9:00 AM daily during the days of Spring Break. 
    • The volunteers on Friday, March 6th will be meeting at Bonilla Science Hall and working on campus.
  • 6 hours of service for each day you volunteer.
  • Dress messy for painting!
