The 14th Annual Legacy of Lowell Day of Service is an opportunity for University of Utah students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and the greater community to engage with various Salt Lake City community partner organizations.
Lowell Bennion was a prominent leader in the Salt Lake City community. Lowell Bennion was responsible for founding the first food bank and homeless shelters in Utah. Lowell Bennion was known for gathering groups of students on Saturday mornings to address community needs such as visiting with and bringing food baskets to widows in the community and is also the namesake of the Bennion Center. On this day we honor his legacy.
This day of service will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m unless otherwise stated on the project description. Legacy of Lowell is the official kickoff for Homecoming 2017!
