MLK Day of Service

The MLK Day of Service is a one-time, one day-outreach activity that commemorates the philosophy and legacy of the late Civil Rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The coordination of this event is a collaborative effort between HFC and the University of Michigan-Dearborn (UM-Dearborn). Students, faculty, and staff from both institutions volunteer their time to help local agencies with renovation, educational and social projects.

The HFC campus will be closed in observance of the birthday of Dr. King. The MLK Day of Service will occur Monday, Jan. 21, 2019 at UM-Dearborn in Kochoff Hall, located in the University Center on 4901 Evergreen Rd (next door to HFC). Registration and breakfast begin at 7:45 a.m. Volunteers depart for sites at 8:30 a.m. and projects end at 1:00 pm. There will not be an afternoon ceremony; the program ends following the completion of your volunteer project.
