MLK Day of Service

1:45 PM - 5:00 PM CST
Intersection of Reed Road and County Lake RoadMap Location

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.

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. This year for MLK Day, volunteers will visit the Oktibbeha County Fired Department (Adaton Fire Station) for an overview of the OCFD, their role in a disaster preparedness and response, and a lesson on how they can be prepared for a disaster situation. Volunteers will then participate in a community service project before departing. A late lunch will be provided to all participants.

This project is part of MSU's President's Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge. For more information, visit:
