MLK Day of Service

January 12th, 2012 | SMWC

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” -- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

To commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College teams up with Indiana State University to serve Wabash Valley nonprofit agencies on Monday, Jan. 16, 2012, for the MLK Day of Service. Student volunteers will lend a helping hand to support local community agencies in their missions. 

Malia Hoffman, coordinator of campus ministry explains the importance of engaging in this service opportunity. “On a day dedicated to celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it's important for our students to continue his legacy of service by reaching out to the community and helping others. I hope our students gain an appreciation of what Dr. King went through to help others and are inspired to continue serving.” 

The event will take place noon – 4 p.m. Registration will begin at noon in Dede I, Hulman Memorial Student Union at Indiana State. Lunch will be provided. After lunch, volunteers will disperse to their service sites from 1– 4 p.m. 

To participate with the SMWC team, contact Malia Hoffman, coordinator of campus ministry at mhoffman@smwc.edu or (812) 535-5244.
