Mount Rainier Lutheran High School students are committed to making a difference in our surrounding community. Numerous efforts that are organized and carried out year-round by our students and staff are a natural reflection of the Christian values we share. Each Wednesday as we gather for chapel, offerings are collected for various projects to help people in need and share the love of Christ. In addition to raising funds, MRLH students can be seen everywhere pitching in with their time and labor. Whether they are digging in the Garden of the Twelve Baskets, wrapping Christmas gifts, or organizing shelves at the Rescue Mission, it is evident that MRLH students care.
