Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

January 20 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Heller Service Corps, the Center for Inclusive Communities, and the Office of Student Involvement and Inclusion join forces to bring the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, Monday, Jan. 20, 2020.

Few things are more rewarding than having an opportunity to come together as a community to help those in need. Dr. King believed that strength is rooted in community collaboration, mutual understanding and love between people, and we recognize these beliefs as important values.

As a way to honor and commemorate Dr. King’s legacy through service, we take this day to expose students, faculty and staff to the many service opportunities in the greater Greenville area. This is a powerful opportunity that will inspire Furman community members who donate their time and will undoubtedly lay a foundation for ongoing interest in volunteerism and making a difference in the lives of others.

Volunteer opportunities range from assisting Habitat for Humanity with a project at one of their restoration locations, clearing land and debris at the YMCA camp, organizing medical charts at the Greenville Free Medical Clinic and much more.

Check-in and breakfast will take place from 8:30 am-9:15 am and service will be held from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. All interested volunteers are required to register via SyncDIN to participate. Volunteers will receive a day of service t-shirt and breakfast prior to departing for your service site. The deadline to sign up is Friday, December 20th. For more information or questions, contact nancy.cooper@furman.edu or deborah.allen@furman.edu.

In addition, if you are interested in serving as a site leader, there is an opportunity to acknowledge interest on the registration form. Site leaders serve as the direct contact for each service site and assist with organizing volunteers the day of at their assigned location. More information will be available in the coming weeks to interested individuals. Thank you for your commitment to serving others in our community.
