Description
The University of Memphis' Civic Engagement Board is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. This service event will help shine a spotlight on service as a powerful force to bridge economic and social divides not only for this day, but throughout every day as a Memphian. This event will provide students, faculty and staff with an opportunity to join together as neighbors, colleagues, leaders, and Memphians to take on challenges that exist throughout the city. Ultimately, serving in honor of the late Martin Luther King Jr. will bring us all together to help make our community a better place for everyone!
