Volunteers Needed for National Day of Service
January 09, 2012
The University of Mount Union is in need of volunteers for the National Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service on Monday, January 16. The planned service projects in the Alliance area, which are being organized by the Mount Union’s Ralph and Mary Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement, gives participants the opportunity to improve the lives of others while giving back to the community.
Volunteers should meet at 9 a.m. on Monday in the Campus Grounds of the Hoover-Price Campus Center on Mount Union’s campus to go over service locations and projects. Throughout the day, participants will assist a variety of organizations in the area including Alchemy Acres, Alliance Area Domestic Violence Shelter, Alliance for Children and Families, YMCA, Empowerment Center, Rodman Public Library, McCrea Manor, Alliance Neighborhood Center, Habitat for Humanity – Salem, First Presbyterian Church and Alliance Community Pantry, among others. Volunteers will be helping with tasks such as children’s activities, cleaning and organizing.
Everyone who participates will receive a free t-shirt, and following the morning of service, lunch will be provided in Campus Grounds.
