By Orlando Vargas, Latino Student Union

The Latino Student Union (LSU) at Verbum Dei High School is accepting donations of personal hygiene items to assemble care packages for the Guadalupe Homeless Project (GHP) of Dolores Mission in Boyle Heights. Any donations of the following items would be greatly appreciated: backpacks, towels, toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss, soap, deodorant, and shampoo. Donations should be dropped off by September 30 to the Campus Ministry Office or to Ms. Villanueva’s office.

“We would also like to give a big shout out to Sister Marilyn [Ficht, RSHM] for her generous donations to our cause,” wrote Orlando Vargas, LSU member. “Sister Marilyn, you rock!”

The on-campus organization is proud to announce that the students participating in the October Service Plunge will cook dinner and socialize with the GHP men on one of the three nights.
