PILS Day of Service a Success


The Public Interest Law Society (PILS) spent the second Saturday of the new semester hard at work at Melrose Elementary School. The annual PILS Day of Service was a great chance to meet fellow law students while helping the community. The nonprofit organization, Volunteers in Public Schools, assisted Carrie Mills and Lili Hangartner of PILS in planning the project to spruce up the local school. There were a total of 40 law student volunteers at the Day of Service. The 1Ls, 2Ls, and 3Ls came out bright and early to paint picnic tables and basketball court lines. PILS members also gardened and fixed bird feeders. In addition, Professor Devlin donated a new basketball net to Melrose. The Law Center generously provided volunteers with a pizza lunch. Melrose Elementary looked much brighter after PILS was finished.
