Orlando, Fla. – On Friday, August 16, morethan 100 incoming Florida A&M University (FAMU) Law students volunteered at three locations for the #ServiceIsOurMission Community Service Project: Second Harvest Food Bank, United Against Poverty Orlando (UP), and Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
The community service work included sorting donated food at Second Harvest Food Bank, stocking food and sorting clothes and other items at UP, and preparing and serving lunch to families at the Coalition for the Homeless.
According to the Second Harvest Food Bank, FAMU Law students sorted items to provide 25,388 meals to local families in need.
The students were decked out in camouflage T-shirts to wrap up two weeks of new student orientation, Foundations for Law School Success: Boot Camp 2019. They have spent the last nine days becoming familiar with the rigors of law school, including developing core critical skills needed to build a strong foundation to achieve law school success.
This is the fourth year members of the entering class have participated in community service projects during new student orientation. The tradition of service continues throughout the academic year with other community service projects that also involve upper-level law students.
