Mother - daughter team, Julia Hagan ’79 and Annie Murphy-Hagan '10 shared their first Alumni for Others (AFO) service day together as fellow alumni.
As a part of SCU Alumni Service for Others and National Month of Service, alumni helped with preparing meals to be delivered to DC shelters.
Annie is well aware of the important function the DC Central Kitchen serves in the District of Columbia. After graduating in June, she moved to Washington, D.C to do a year of service through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. She works 40 hours at Rachael's Women's Center, a day center for homeless women that, coincidentally, serves meals supplied by DC Central Kitchen. While at Rachael's, Annie coordinates activities, plans field trips, and recruits guest speakers. She also works part time on fundraising and development. One of the things Annie enjoys about Rachael's is the low-barrier nature of the work. "It's an incredibly honest environment. Our day center functions as a safe space away from the streets-- a place of hospitality and healing. Spending time with people who sleep outside or in a shelter, has taught me a lot about the on-goings of the city and daily challenges to recovery."
