MISSOULA – Missoula College University of Montana nursing students will host a pancake breakfast Sunday, Nov. 12, to assist with fundraising for a volunteer medical trip to Nicaragua in January.
Breakfast will be served from 7 to 10:30 a.m. at the Blackfoot Café inside the new Missoula College Building, located at 1205 E. Broadway St. The students will cook pancakes and sausage, and fruit, orange juice and coffee will be available.
The full meal costs $7, and all proceeds will go directly to trip expenses. The community is welcome to join the students and faculty for a hearty breakfast and learn more about the trip.
Students and faculty will travel to Nicaragua Jan. 14-17. The trip is an independent travel opportunity for the nine students involved, and they are raising all of their own funds to make the trip possible.
Their group goal is to raise $27,000 to cover airfare, room, board and in-country support – primarily ground transportation and medical supplies. The group also plans to donate medical supplies to the three clinics they will assist at in the rural town of El Tránsito, Nicaragua.
