On October 14th, Dr. Tseng's class spent the afternoon at the Blue Ribbon Project's headquarters learning about the different challenges foster children face in the DC Metro area. They also spent the day packing 25 backpacks of love. Backpacks of love are filled with 24-48 hours' worth of essentials and are given to the children as they are placed into foster care.
There are several additional programs and events scheduled for the year as part of the grant. The Saints’ Center for Service civic engagement grant has opened opportunities for Marymount students to reach the underserved and to address a critical need of our time.
