Surfing the Nations Team

Location: Wahiawa, Hawaii

Issue Area: Urban Renewal, Hunger & Homelessness  

www.surfingthenations.com 

Surfing the Nations (STN), the newest Project Serve partner, is excited to work with another team of Pepperdine students this year. STN’s motto is “Surfers Giving Back”: surfers lead the way, but anyone who is willing and able is encouraged to join! Their mission is to see lives changed inside and outside of the organization with a focus on hunger and homelessness and at-risk youth. 

Hawaii, the state with the 3rd highest rate of homelessness, has 10.4% of its residents living in poverty and 14% of experiencing food insecurity. STN is doing remarkable work in Wahiawa to give hope to those in need. Team members will participate by sorting donated goods, rehabilitating a lake, and distributing food to the needy and homeless. Team members will also get to go surfing (of course) and explore the island of Wahiawa.

Our team, one of the largest groups participating in Project Serve this year, is passionate about combatting hunger and homelessness, especially in the United States. We are all Pepperdine students who have a heart for service and want to create change in our world; we are blessed by the opportunity to travel to Wahiawa over spring break in hopes of making an impact in the lives of others. Your support, be it prayers for safe travel or a monetary donation, is greatly appreciated!
