Magis is committed to developing ways for Jesuit-educated alumni to come together for short immersion experiences and occasional service in our local neighborhoods through the Seattle University Youth Initiative.
Come together with other Jesuit-educated alumni to serve at St. Mary's Food Bank in Seattle's Central District. The St. Mary's Food Bank provides nutritious food to families and individuals who are struggling with hunger through a variety of services, including the Walk-In Program, where over 6,700 people receive groceries each month. Alumni volunteers commit to assisting with distribution of food, checking-in clients, sorting food items, and participating in a short reflection following service. The Magis group goes the fourth Saturday of the month, and service is from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If you are interested in serving as a volunteer or would like to recruit a group of alumni, please email Magis. Alumni family and children welcome: children seven (7) years or older may participate and must be accompanied by an adult.
In partnership with Seattle University Alumni Relations, Magis offers alumni of Jesuit universities and colleges an opportunity to serve in the local community in order to bring about a spirit of being men and women for and with others. National Jesuit Alumni Day of Service will send alumni volunteers to nearby Seattle area agency sites where alumni will assist with a variety of tasks. This day of service is part of the National Jesuit Service Initiative, which engages graduates across the nation in shared service which demonstrates the life-changing and enduring power of a Jesuit education.
