Law students help shelter


Students, faculty and staff from WMU-Cooley Law School’s Auburn Hills campus joined together to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day by volunteering at Grace Centers of Hope (GCH), a homeless shelter in Pontiac, on Jan. 19.  Among those happy to lend a hand were (left to right) Kai Hullum, Samuel Elira, Danielle Stone, April McKie, Michael Ferguson, and Nehemiah Williams.  “This day is dedicated to people coming together for a greater cause, and we were thrilled to honor Dr. King by volunteering and assisting those in need at GCH,” said McKie, president of WMU-Cooley’s Black Law Students Association.  The WMU-Cooley volunteers helped sort and organize donations that came into the center, as well as took down Christmas lights and holiday decorations.  GCH is a center that provides refuge, safety and security to those without a home, while supplying a wide range of programs to help them rebuild their lives and assist with re-entering society.  (Photo courtesy of WMU-Cooley)
