Snapshots from RAPPORT Winter Community Service

RAPPORT students spent Saturday, May 5th, volunteering with Over the Rhine Community Housing - "a non-profit organization that works to build and sustain a diverse neighborhood that values and benefits low-income residents" in Cincinnati.

Seven volunteers met downtown for a fun morning of cleaning an apartment & basement and getting to know the neighborhood.  Several stuck around for lunch at Findlay Market.  Saturday was a first visit to Over the Rhine for a couple of the volunteers and the neighborhood seem to win them over.

Daniel (XXV) tries to win us over on the cleaner he found in a basement. "The Must for Rust!"

Current RAPPer Matt W joined us for the morning of service!
