Community Outreach Day to honor Martin Luther King, Jr.

Recommended Stories For You

The Centers of Service and Learning of UVSC and BYU will join together to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through a day dedicated to service. The eighth annual Community Outreach Day will be held Jan. 15, at the BYU Wilkinson Center.

"Martin Luther King Day is not only a day off work, it is a day of service," said Alexis Palmer, director of the UVSC Center for Service and Learning. "This day is to honor King and his desire to serve others and give back to the community."

The day will begin with breakfast and a speaker at 9 a.m. Following the speaker, students and community members will have various opportunities to lend a hand to service projects held either in the Wilkinson Center or out in the public. Past projects have included quilting, knitting hats, visiting senior centers and putting together learning packets for children throughout Utah County.

UVSC and BYU have collaborated in order to benefit the community, and not to take away service opportunities from one another. In the past, Community Outreach Day has been very successful with thousands of students from both UVSC and BYU in attendance.
