A group of 12 University of Missouri students took a break from the snow in their home state to visit Houston in January, including a stop at Medical Bridges to volunteer, guided by a primary principle to "Serve, Don't Help."

The students represented Mizzou Alternative Breaks, which sends groups on trips around the U.S. over weekend and seasonal school breaks to "selflessly and humbly serve a community by doing service that they ask of us," according to its website. They were told to head South on their winter break, and the students - all health majors who didn't know each other before they loaded into two cars to drive to Houston -- chose this city to visit on their health-focused trip because of its Medical Center and many hospitals.

A doctor from Baylor College of Medicine hand-carried medical supplies to a Lesbos, Greece refugee clinic and reported back to Medical Bridges, saying the clinic was "a scene out of the TV show M.A.S.H."
