Professor and Students Donate Food and Supplies to Food Pantry
WMU-Cooley Law School Professor Stevie Swanson and WMU-Cooley students recently donated a truck full of food and supplies to the food pantry at the Lord’s Lighthouse Ministry in Wimauma, Florida. The ministry serves local migrant workers and their families and helps these individuals meet their basic dietary needs.
Swanson and two students, C. Gable Yerrid and Joseph Cline, delivered the donations on July 20. Following their trip to the pantry, the group traveled to a migrant camp to distribute food baskets to families.
“This project would not have been successful without their efforts and the overwhelming generosity of many of my students,” Swanson said. “I am so honored to be surrounded by such dedicated students. Their commitment to service is truly inspirational.”
