Volunteer for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

Submitted by Shandell Gallardo

The Staley School of Leadership Studies, Kansas State University and the Manhattan community will come together Jan. 18, 2016, for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

Volunteers can report to the Manhattan Town Center Mall from 9 a.m. to noon to assist with service work all across the community. Preregistration is open to the public through Jan. 17. Onsite registration also is available from 8–8:45 a.m. Jan. 18 at the Manhattan Town Center Mall.

The Day of Service is recognized all across the country in honor of King and is being led by the world's leading organization for volunteer work, Points of Light, and the Corporation for National and Community Service. Millions of Americans will come together for this day of national service and dialogue to honor his memory.

King called for social justice and opportunity. He asked that we bridge differences, come together in unity to do our best and help our neighbors. To lend a hand to the Manhattan community, HandsOn Kansas State has several events and conversations planned to celebrate King.

Register as an individual volunteer or contact HandsOn Kansas State at 785-532-3670 or handson@k-state.edu to register a volunteer group or to get more information.
