MLK Day of Service

This year's MLK Day of Service is on Monday, January 16th, 2023, at 9:30 am at the Mill Conference Center, where we will honor MLK’s legacy and teachings by improving our community through volunteering from 10 am-noon. Service breaks down barriers by mobilizing people from different experiences and brings us together – volunteering can instill unity and solidarity while building stronger communities. We also encourage everyone to attend the MLK Day Breakfast. At 9:30 am, we encourage to show up ready to influence our community, grab a snack, and pick up your t-shirt. Volunteering will begin at 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and begins at the community agency of YOUR choosing via slots listed under the Cowbell Connect 'SERVICE' tab after logging in via myState. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION
