MLK Day of Service – January 17, 2011

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

January 17, 2011 will mark the 25th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday. This milestone is a perfect opportunity for Americans to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community.

The UNCP Office for Community and Civic Engagement invites students, faculty and staff to take up the MLK Service Challenge and make it a “day on, not of a day off.” The MLK Service Challenge will kick off with an Opening Ceremony in the University Center followed by a day of service at various locations throughout Robeson County. Interested volunteers should contact Banjo Dryman at 910.521.6561 orderald.dryman@uncp.edu to register and participate in the Day of Service.
