Helping Hands

Ten volunteers from California Lutheran University spent a week in May working with Lutheran Disaster Response to clean up forgotten areas of flood-ravaged Minnesota. Coordinated by University Pastors Scott '76 and Melissa '77 Maxwell-Doherty, the students, alumni and faculty focused on areas such as sandbag removal and community park cleanup.

Taking a break from their labors are former chemistry professor Mike Wiley, left, Greg Ronning '82, Breanne Gibson, Sierra Ronning, Kelly Fry, an unidentified homeowner and Nate Maxwell-Doherty. Lutheran Disaster Response is a collaborative ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
