Capstone Collegiate Missions (CCM) is the only student-led, international service organization at the University of Alabama. Every December, CCM travels to Nicaragua where we build houses, provide various school supplies and necessities, and, most importantly, we form true friendships with the people. One of our favorite traditions of the trip is bringing Christmas to the village. Every child in the village gets to see "santa" and get a Christmas gift or two.
Our main purpose for raising these funds will be to purchase building materials in order to build houses in a village called The 28th of May. We went to this village last year, and the need was so great we have decided to visit again. The 28th of May is a relatively small village where many people live in homes made from trees and tarps. Our goal is to continue to build houses so that everyone in the village has adequate shelter.

Getting ready for Christmas morning!
We not only volunteer in Nicaragua, but also at many local shelters, food banks, etc. here in Tuscaloosa.
Please consider donating any amount to help us reach our goal!
