I’m not sure how many years law students have been preparing sack lunches for the day laborers that gather at the Malibu Community Labor Exchange, but this is my seventh year to be a part of this good work — and it was going on well before I arrived.
On the first Saturday of each month, a group of law students gather at the George Page Commons to make the lunches. Some of the students transport the lunches down to the workers for distribution. Last Saturday was our week, and we had a great turnout among such busy law students! Joe Spano (3L, in the orange shirt with his back to the camera above) is the leader for this year’s sandwich-making, and he is doing a tremendous job.
What impresses me the most is that these students — already crunched for time due to study (and just needing a break from time to time!) — take time out of their Saturday to serve others. It is an honor to watch this up close.
