MLK Day of Service

MLK Day of Service

Oregon State’s Martin Luther King Jr. celebration kicks off today, Monday, Jan. 13th and continues through Jan. 24th. “OSU’s celebration is one of the oldest continuous MLK events in the state. It is organized each year by a group of OSU community members convened by the Office of Equity and Inclusion.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’” Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

This year Oregon State University’s MLK Day of Service is put on by OSU’s Center for Civic Engagement and the Student Events and Activities Center/Community & Cultural Meal Program. This day of service will take place Saturday, January 18th. The event and celebration is open to students, staff, faculty and their children/dependents. There are over 9 different service projects to take apart in this year and they range from mentoring at the Jackson Street Youth Shelter to home building with Benton Habitat for Humanity. Registration and a complete list of all available projects can be found here.

Pre- registration is required, and all participants will assemble at McAlexander Fieldhouse from 8:30am to 11:30am. Food is provided! For more information please visit the website.

This is Beaver Nation.
