MLK Day of Service is a one-time, one-day outreach activity that commemorates the philosophy and legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Students, faculty and staff from both institutions volunteer their time and service to help local agencies with renovation, educational and social projects. The public is also invited to help their community!

The HFC campus will be closed in observance of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

MLK Day of Service is Monday, Jan. 16, 2017, at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Kochoff Hall in the University Center (4901 Evergreen Rd). Registration and breakfast begin at 7:45 a.m.; volunteers depart for sites at 8:30 a.m. and projects end at 1 p.m. There will not be an afternoon ceremony. The program ends following the completion of your volunteer project.

As of January 6, online registration is closed. However, there are a few spots still available for walk-in volunteers on the day of this event.

The 2017 project agencies include ACCESS, Alternative for Girls, Arts and Scraps, Beyond Basics, Fish and Loaves, Gleaners and a host of others. Register early, volunteer slots are going fast! Come and make a difference on MLK Day!
