MLK Day Offers Service Galore!

The best 3-day weekend has come and gone, which allowed for ample time to party study. Yesterday,¬†there were quite a few students, professors, and members of the community who showed up bright and early to the HUB to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday(Penn State style!). Volunteers were given the option of serving the community in two ways:

  1. Staying in the HUB and doing ‘service-to-go’ ( such as making Meals On Wheels bags).
  2. Being sent out to service sites to help serve the community. Some of these sites included the House of Care (which is where I went!) and Nittany Greyhounds.

Whether volunteers opted to go out to service sites and help or stay in the HUB and do service-to-go, it helped make the Penn State community a better place to live in, even if it was just for one day. Volunteers were rewarded justly though for their efforts though as they were given free t-shirts, free breakfast, AND a free lunch. As an added bonus, RAM Squad performed during the lunch break in Heritage Hall. Who says waking up early and doing community service on a Monday morning could be a waste of time? Not I. These memories will last forever (or until I throw out the free t-shirt).

If you are looking for more ways to get free stuff commemorate Dr. King, there are still 2 more events this week.

  1. Tuesday, January 19: A Peace March is being held, starting at 4pm from the Old Main Steps. A reception with free food follows the march.
  2. Wednesday, January 20: Come and see Keith Boykin speak in the Eisenhower Auditorium for free. Tickets available at the Eisenhower Auditorium ticket office.
