MLK Day of Service 2014
Monday, January 20, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM (CST)
New Orleans, LA
Join over 1000 students in serving the community all over the city. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is the biggest annual one-day service event that brings New Orleans college students (Dillard, Loyola, Xavier, and Tulane), as well as the universities' faculty, staff, alumni and their families together to do community service. This partnership supports the ongoing efforts to expand the impact and capacity of partnering organizations to support The New Orleans’ Diaspora effort to return, rebuild, and renew their lives since 2005’s catastrophic Hurricane Katrina disaster.
We will have over 20 different service opportunities that impact a number of issues including: rebuilding, school & neighborhood revitalization, celebration of the arts & local culture, and more! In keeping with the dream, each will randomly be placed in one of our 20 sites with other members of a different university to insure that this is not just a day to serve but also a day to live the dream by making meaningful connections with one of the most diverse bodies of students in the country.
