On Saturday, March 25th, the Pro Bono & Community Service Initiative (PBCSI) partnered with DePaul University Ministries, If/When/How, PAD and WBA to host the March Donate-a-Day. Volunteers went to Dolores' Safe Haven, a branch of Deborah's Place for a fun morning and afternoon. Deborah's Place provides supporting housing for single women experiencing homelessness. Volunteers played Bingo and ate lunch with the women who are staying at the Dolores' Safe Haven location.
Spending time at Deborah’s Place was both fun and rewarding, as we had the opportunity to spend a stress-free afternoon playing Bingo and eating lunch with the women," said first-year law student Mandi Moreland. "The most rewarding part of the day was simply socializing and getting to know people we may never get to meet otherwise. While women won prizes during Bingo, I noticed several of them sharing their game-winning boards with other women, so everyone had a chance to receive a prize. This was such a great reminder that no matter how much we have, we can always be generous and helpful to others.
