October 19, 2019 marked the inaugural MPS Day of Service. Ancients across the country gathered to support the cities in which they live. From installing much needed fire alarms in homes in Los Angeles, to serving popcorn at a festival to further local economic development, to gathering much needed supplies for a women’s shelter, Ancients served their communities, setting the groundwork to shape the world in which they live!
Thank you to Maggie Johndrow ’06 and Caroline Udelhofen ’07 for their work in organizing this amazing simultaneous service project effort.


Thanks to Maddie Goldberg ’16 for her creative ideas in putting this
video compilation of the day together!
