  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Students Help in Hurricane Recovery Effort

A group of Boston College students are spending their winter break in South Mississippi this week helping the Hurricane Katrina recovery effort, reports WLOX, a local ABC affiliate.

The students braved mold and mildew as they repaired the Vietnamese Martyr's Center, one of many projects the BC students will be working on throughout the week.

Over the course of the past semester, BC students held a number of events to raise funds to help aid the victims of the storm, including a collection at the BC-Army football game that raised $25,000 to aid relief efforts.

Assistant Dean of Students at Boston College Chris Darcy emphasized, however, that "It's not enough to just send money." Darcy, who is now in Mississippi with over 100 members of the BC community, went on to say, "You have to put your love and passions in action. That's what these students are doing."

The volunteer initiative was previously covered by the Boston College Chronicle. Visit the "BC Katrina Cleanup" site here.
