Alumni Community Projects

Walsh College Alumni Association (WCAA) coordinates many community service projects for alumni, students, and friends.

#HashtagLunchBag - Detroit

Come on out and join your fellow alumni to give back to the community!

#HashtagLunchbag meets monthly to prepare and distribute lunches for those less fortunate throughout Detroit.  The group meets on the last Sunday of every month at Marygrove College in Detroit. 

It’s a movement dedicated to utilizing social media to bring awareness and eliminate hunger needs in local communities. 

We will pack until we've met our goal for the event of total amount of lunches. Once we've met that we will head out to pass out to the community.  #HashtagLunchbag asks volunteers to bring a $10 donation to help cover the cost of groceries for their upcoming events (although it’s not mandatory).
