In recognition Martin Luther King Jr. Day, 2015, LWGMS is kicking off an inaugural Alumnae Day of Service. From here on out, each year on this day, L-Dub alumnae will come together to give back to the Seattle community and enjoy some together-again time!
On Monday, January 19 (MLK Day), 15 members of the alumnae community will be helping our friends at Centerstone (where our sixth grade students spend their service learning time) revamp their food bank.
We'll be hosting at least two alumnae service events each year from here on out, so we hope that alumnae keep us in mind after you graduate: you can receive high school and/or college service hours for their efforts.
For all others, here is a short list of MLK events going on in and around Seattle. We hope you will use your day off from school to reflect on the importance of the day, to march, or to get your hands dirty helping others.
