    "This group of students stepped up to meet the challenge this year, and I couldn’t be prouder of them."- Brea Rutledge, Pre-Law Society president

    On Wednesday, April 27, the Pre-Law Society held a community service event to benefit two local organizations. Members of the society were encouraged to bring donations for the Alice V. Leahy Food Pantry at The University of Scranton and new socks for the NEPA Youth Shelter. Together, the society collected more than 130 donations for the pantry and 20 pairs of new socks for the shelter. Members also wrote more than 140 cards to be distributed to hospitalized children across the United States.

    "It is amazing to see the Pre-Law Society members help their community after the pandemic halted most activities," said Pre-Law Society president Brea Rutledge. "This group of students stepped up to meet the challenge this year, and I couldn’t be prouder of them."

    During the 2021-2022 school year, the society held five community service events. Together they donated over 260 items to local organizations in Scranton and wrote over 280 cards for veterans and hospitalized children.
