LMU is celebrating 100 years of educating men and women for others in the Jesuit and Marymount traditions. The university will include a Centennial Day of Service during the year long celebration.
Join alumni and friends for an LMU Alumni for Others service project in New York City. The service project will take place at HandCrafting Justice (HCJ). HCJ provides access to Fair Trade markets for unique, handmade goods created by enterprising women in the developing world working to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
Special thank you to our alumni leads David Brown '08 and Caroline Kim ‘10 for organizing this year’s service project.
