The Office of Community Relations delivered more than 150 Valentines, gift baskets and heart-healthy meals to elderly residents at Metropolitan Village Apartments.
The meals were provided by Campus Kitchens and the items for the baskets were donated by members of the SLU community. More than 1,500 items were given to the Office of Community Relations for the cause.
Students also made cards for the residents under the direction of the Center for Service and Community Engagement.
This year, SLU partnered with the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis in delivering the items to seniors. Michael McMillan, president and CEO of the Urban League in St. Louis, is a SLU alumnus.
