MLK DAY 2015
Life's most persistent and urgent question is: "What are you doing for others?"
We Made A Difference!
This year's theme focused on “Healthy Schools, Thriving Communities”. Students served at twenty four sites to support community identified projects including neighborhood clean ups, painting at neighborhood housing centers, graffiti abatement, community gardens, and other community beautification projects. The service projects and reflection activities prompted college student volunteers to reflect on the teachings of Dr. King, the value of education and community, and how they as students can help strengthen the relationship between schools and community. These themes were discussed amongst students at the closing rally celebration.

The MLK Day of Service is a collaborative of Oregon colleges facilitated by ORCC. To honor and celebrate Dr. King's legacy, we unite our community to serve the places that we live, work, and study. Annually, it is the largest mobilization of college students in the country on MLK Day. This event is made possible by a grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service and Hope WorldWide.
