Wesley Club students at the University of WA share their compassion through CWS

It started with dinner and a workshop.  CWS regional staff joined the Wesley Club, the United Methodist campus ministry, several evenings for a meal and conversation.  They explained how CWS works internationally and how critical water is to so many aspects of every-day life around the world.

The students decided to put what they learned into action.  During Lent they encouraged fellow students to donate spare change or cash in order to provide blankets to disaster refugees or others in need through the CWS Blankets+ program.  And in the fall Wesley Club students are looking forward to participating in the Seattle CROP Hunger Walk.  These students truly exemplify compassion and generosity.
