Reflection: "When This Is Over," by Laura Kelly Fanucci
Reflection Question: What is one blessing, unexpected gift, or important take-away that you would like to carry forward from this time?
Magis Message: Maeve McMahon '19

Your Magis Message for the day comes from Maeve McMahon, Class of 2019.

"When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else." -Toni Morrison

Get Involved with Village in the Heights
Village in the Heights is a nonprofit all-volunteer organization that services University Heights, Beachwood, Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights, South Euclid, and Lyndhurst. Their members/clients are active older adults living independently in their own homes, who occasionally need help with transportation, light duty home repairs, and visitation.  

Right now, they are seeking people who will deliver groceries and prescriptions to members, once an individual member places and prepays their orders online or by phone.

- Purchases are prepaid - so no money handled by driver
- Purchased goods are placed in driver's car
- Driver contacts member by phone or text to say the merchandise is on its way
- Merchandise is left in front of Village member's door
- Driver again contacts member to say delivery is complete.
