Kick off a new semester with a week of service! First- and Second-Year Experience and Academic Advising Center are partnering in the 2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, which will run through Jan. 20, by raising money to donate to a local organization. The money raised will be donated to one of the following local community organizations: Bethlehem Feed My Sheep food pantry, Raven’s Huskie Haven & Rescue, Barb Food Mart, Huskie Student Food Pantry, Salvation Army or TAILS Humane Society.
Residents from Academic and Career Exploratory Scholars and Second-Year Experience Living Learning Community will be tabling throughout the week to raise funds through a friendly competition of Penny Wars: Freshmen vs. Sophomore Class.
Stop by and donate at New Hall Community Center from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday; Stevenson South near the dining hall entrance from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; or DuSable Hall main entrance from 10 a.m. to noon Friday.
Donors may vote for which community partner they would like to receive the funds from this event.
