UW Law School Students Start Off First Year with Community Service

Students making blankets for 2011 Community Outreach Day

On August 31, the UW Law School class of 2014 put aside their textbooks for a day of community service.

More than 200 students partnered with Project Linus, a nonprofit organization dedicated to "providing security through blankets" for ill or traumatized children and teens. Working together, the students made handmade blankets and cards to be given as gifts.

"Community Outreach Day is a reminder that law is a service profession," says Kimberly Frank, student services coordinator at the Law School, who organized the day of service. "The blankets are a way for our students to engage with their new community."
