Westminster Gives Back

Don't forget to like and share! 🙂

While many in this country were focused on the historical inauguration last Friday, the attention of many Westminster students and faculty was elsewhere.
Westminster College held a service project on January 20th, where they invited elementary students from the South Salt Lake area. “The groups of students and staff supervised children who prepared hygiene kits for homeless individuals and families. Children also spent time working with the American Red Cross to write letters to service members stationed abroad,” said Ryan Morgan of the Deseret News as he described the events that took place on Friday.
The project was done partly in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The intent was to celebrate his ideals of service, equality, and diversity. Another part of the project was to encourage the “college-going culture”. They want to help young children see what college is like. “It’s a great experience for kids to come to college and learn,” said Elias Cisneros, an elementary school student who helped make cards for service men and women.
Seventy students, faculty, and staff members organized the nearly one hundred and eighty students into groups to complete the various service projects.
