For Valentine’s day, the ELML department organized the “Love Your Neighbor” event, where students and staff helped to assemble packages for those in need.

Many volunteers came to the event to pack boxes for those in need, showing neighborly love rather than romantic love on Valentine’s Day.
Dozens of bags were filled to go to homeless shelters, and among other items included personal hygiene products and snacks.
Because there were so many volunteers, the boxes were filled quickly.
Along with the other items included in the boxes, like food, students put in handwritten letters.
The letters each student wrote truly added a personal touch to the boxes.
