Selfless students

Pepperdine University students Hannah Schley- a Malibu resident-and McKenna Harris have spearheaded a fundraiser to benefit The Union Rescue Mission, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving men, woman and children experiencing homelessness. 

Schley and Harris are striving to raise $3,000 by May 1, all of which will be used to buy basic necessities-such as socks and soap-for those in The Union Rescue Mission in Los Angeles.

Schley and her family have been involved with the mission for some time now, and this year she and Harris have started interning with the development department.  

“While we have been involved with all aspects of how a nonprofit organization is run, how fundraisers are put together, executed as well as the follow through, the most significant and meaningful aspect of our work is the time we spend in the day room on skid row,” Schley and Harris said in a written statement. “Coming from Malibu and San Louis Obispo, this kind of suffering and homelessness is something that has been removed from our reality for the most part.

“Through our work we wanted to just find a simple way to make their day better,” Schley and Harris said. “Socks and soap are two staples that to them are a huge luxury.”
