Manhattan College’s office of campus ministry and social action will be sponsoring a book sale on Saturday, Oct. 9, located in Smith Auditorium from 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. All proceeds will benefit Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experience (L.O.V.E.) trips scheduled for this upcoming year. The books were donated by a member of the campus community and nearly 1,000 books will be on sale including: recent and class novels, non-fiction books, textbooks and much more.
L.O.V.E. is a service program within the Manhattan College community that strives to provide students with the opportunity to participate in community service and explore what it means to work towards social justice around the world. As a part of the Lasallian tradition, L.O.V.E encourages students to develop relationships with not only their peers but also their surrounding communities whose culture and lifestyles differ from their own. L.O.V.E. seeks to offer students an experience that develops their spiritual and cultural growth through reflection and discussion, and further shape their commitment to social justice in the future.
“The Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experience operates primarily on donations from family and friends of participants, local businesses and fundraisers, such as this book sale. All fund raising efforts help subsidize the out of pocket cost for the student participants,” said Jennifer Edwards, Manhattan College coordinator for social action service trips. “This book sale is a great way to advertise the L.O.V.E. program and the students’ commitment to the Lasallian tradition in the local community.”
