Read About Amazing Holiday Community Service in Walla Walla
By Audrey Kelly ’15 Excerpt republished with permission
Adopting a family sounds like a difficult task, but it doesn’t take much to provide a family with a more cheerful holiday season.
Abby Juhasz, the community service coordinator in the Student Engagement Center, facilitates the Adopt-a-Family program every winter. Whitman students, faculty and staff can group together (like the Biology department, the Admissions Office, and Marcus House) to “adopt” a family. Groups donate funds necessary to ensure that their family has enough food, necessities and small gifts to make their holidays special.
