MLK Day of Service on January 19th

January 16th, 2013

The annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is about coming together to honor Dr. King’s life and legacy and help further his dream for peace by serving our neighbors and communities. MLK Day is a perfect opportunity for us to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, builds bridges, breaks down barriers, addresses social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of strong, beloved communities.

Students, staff, and faculty are invited to take part in this event and celebration.

8 service projects will be offered for the 2013 event addressing diverse issue areas and including various types of projects. This years service projects include Corvallis Parks & Recreation, Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Club, Edible Corvallis Initiative, Stone Soup, Heartland Humane Society, Corvallis Environmental Center, and Oregon State University College Forests. Pre-registration is required. Participants will assemble at McAlexander Fieldhouse between 8:30 and 9am on Saturday January 19th. Continental breakfast and hot tea/coffee will be provided during the check-in process and a hot lunch will be provided upon return to campus between 1pm and 1:30pm. The 2013 MLK Day of Service is sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement, the Student Events and Activities Center, and HandsOn Willamette.
