UDM Law Serves Local Vets

In recognition of UDM's Jesuit mission of serving others, the Law School's Social Committee sponsored a community service event on June 24th to serve our nation's veterans. Students, faculty and staff gave up their personal time to come together on a hot and sunny summer day to cook and serve lunch to local homeless veterans at the Michigan Veterans Foundation.

The Michigan Veterans Foundation (MVF) is a non-profit agency whose main project is the Detroit Veterans Center (DVC), a veteran-initiated effort that opened its doors in 1989. As a transitional housing facility and resource center, the DVC provides an opportunity for homeless veterans to learn the skills and gain the confidence needed to break the cycle of homelessness and return to independent living.

"It was truly an incredible experience. The veterans were extremely gracious and appreciative and it was a wonderful afternoon enjoyed by all. I think we all shared the same feeling at the end of the lunch -- it sure feels good to give back." Amy Smith, Assistant Dean for Operations and Chief of Staff.

Project SALUTE, the Law Schools pro bono veterans' project, counts MVF/DVC as one of their closest community partners with longstanding collaborations to assist veterans. This September, the Law School will partner with MVF to feed homeless veterans via a Community Garden project thanks to a grant from the Ford Motor Company. Volunteers from the Law School, MVF and Ford Motor Company will help construct and prepare raised garden beds for spring planting. MVF will use the produce to help underwrite the cost of serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to their veterans.

For Community Garden volunteer opportunities, contact Amy Smith at: (313) 596-0207.
