MLK Jr. Day of Service

This year during the MLK, Jr. Day of Service we are conducting a campus/community-wide “Bring Back” initiative. Upon returning from winter break, we are asking that you consider bringing back to campus items that will assist various agencies in providing services throughout the year.

Because many of the agencies supplies get depleted during the holiday season, your support is needed. Please bring any of the items listed below in the "2018 Bring Back Initiative List" to the MLK Jr. Day of Service collection point in the Curris Center Banquet Room 1 between 8:00am - 10:15am on Monday, January 15, 2018. After the MLK Jr. Breakfast and Keynote, help will be needed to sort all of the donations for each agency and deliver them. All are welcome to stay and help.

Thank You
