Holiday Drive Has Ended

OSLCE's annual Holiday Drive has ended. A BIG thank you to all those who donated and contributed to a happy holiday season for those families and individuals in need. Think about donating any winter coats, men's and women's clothing, unwrapped toys for kids, etc.

This past holiday season, we supported Aeon, Our Saviour's Housing, and People Serving People.

OSLCE was at Homecoming

OSLCE welcomed Tommies back to campus! Young and old visited OSLCE during Purple on the Plaza before the Homecoming football game on Saturday, October 11th, 2014.

OSLCE used the "What's your Service?" to encourage people to continue to serve our local community organizations and stay engaged with St. Thomas!

Family Weekend Service Project

Family Weekend at St. Thomas was on Saturday, October 4th, 2014. OSLCE held a very succesful Service Project! We partnered with Free Arts Minnesota in creating greeting cards and goody bags for their volunteers and participants!

Free Arts MN, located downtown Minneapolis, brings art into the lives of children who have a background of being at-risk youth, abused or neglected. UST families can join us and Free Arts MN for this engaging service project. This will be a come-and-go time and will provide an opportunity for UST families to serve the local community.
