Alumni aided SOME (So Others May Eat). SOME is an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation’s capital. The organization meets the immediate daily needs of the people it serves with food, clothing and health care. SOME helps break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment and counseling, to the poor, the elderly and individuals with mental illness.
Alumni in St. Louis volunteered at City Academy, a K-6 school that strives to admit promising children from committed families in the urban community; offer an exceptional and affordable education; foster a culture of academic rigor, integrity and citizenship; and cultivate an appreciation of lifelong learning that inspires future success.
SMU alumni assisted the United Methodist Children’s Home (UMCH) with landscaping. The mission of UMCH is to provide redemptive, healing services that bring meaningful change to children and families. The Children’s Home has been a safe haven for abused children and youth since 1871. Services are aimed at preventing the breakup of families, restoring and healing separated families, and teaching teens and young adults how to create successful lives for their future families.
