Duke LASO's Annual Valentine's Day Event

On February 19th, Duke LASO (Latin American Student Organization) had their annual Valentine's Day giveaway event, despite the winter storm that same morning. The flowers were delivered all the way from Colombia, donated by Flores El Trigal and Queen's Flowers. The event was coordinated by Natalia Mesa, a Duke and LASO alum from the Class of 2020. LASO distributed the bouquets through West Union, East and West bus stops, Pitchforks, security locations, Perkins Library, The Loop, and the East Campus Marketplace. Amidst all the recent changes and the ongoing pandemic, LASO was able to show Duke and Healthcare workers how much their dedication, care, and courage was appreciated.
