It was a blessing to connect with fellow Lutes whom I'd never met. Together we worked hard to help an amazing organization move it's mission forward, which was a great feeling. -Tamara '04
PLU Alumni Day of Service
Lutes near and far came together last April for The PLU Alumni Day of Service. Lute Pride was everywhere as Alumni, Prospective Students, and Friends of the University got together to showcase their care for people, communities, and the earth!
Check out all the amazing work that happened!
Here in Tacoma, Lutes teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to help build of a community house at the Golden Given community near PLU’s Campus.
In Seattle, Lutes volunteered at The Ronald McDonald House cleaning and organizing the pantry.
In Portland, Lutes removed invasive species and worked so other Portlandians could enjoy a public space.
In Washington D.C. Lutes volunteered with Warrior Canine Connection where their hard work was paid for with dog kisses.
In the Twin Cities, Lutes packed up nutritious meals for Feed My Starving Children.
In Anchorage, Lutes assembled Warm-Welcome kits for Catholic Social Services, to help those in need integrate seamlessly to society.
But it didn't stop there!
Besides the organized group projects Lutes all over were working on other service initiatives such as:
Hearts and Hammers day on south Whidbey Island
Rebuilding Together project
Annual Neighborhood Clean Up
Local museum volunteering
Plastic reduction project at the International School of Bangkok
Rotary Park project
Elementary school volunteering
Craft Box assembly at Church (Pictured Below)
Thanks to all who made the day an overwhelming success. Stay tuned for PLU Alumni Day Service 2017!
