Women's Law Caucus Charity Drive!

Being a stupendous person is great. Purging your life of useless baggage is equally great. Now, thanks to the Women’s Law Caucus, you can do them both at the same time! Amazing! The WLC is hosting a charity drive collecting clothes, shoes, small household items, books, etc. that are clean and in good condition. Whatever we collect will be sold at a massive yard sale hosted by the Crescent Moon Lodge. That’s the purging part, here’s the stupendous part. Proceeds will go to the VA Hospital Psychology Ward and towards sponsoring a University of Louisville Scholar House Family. You’d be making a genuine difference in a fellow student’s life, not to mention actively supporting our Veterans.

            Over the next two weeks you can bring any unwanted items to the Student Lounge, next to the Offices of Professional Development.  If you do, you will be stupendous. Plus you’ll have room for all that stuff you haven’t bought yet!

 

For any questions about the drive, the yard sale or how you can get involved, please contact Megan McDonald at Mcmcdo02@louisville.edu.
