  • 10am-2pm - MLK Day of Service (meetup in SAC Multipurpose Room)
    MLK Day of Service has been an American tradition since 1994. Sponsored by UofL’s Engage Lead Serve Board, participants will enjoy free food and a free t-shirt. No registration required. Volunteers should meet in the SAC Multipurpose Room at 10am to sign up for a service site. The UofL Sustainability Council is hosting an on-campus service site at our volunteer-powered community composting project. At 10:30am, we will feature a speaker, and at 11:00am, we will provide transportation to service sites. Participants will be back on campus by 2:00pm. We encourage you to join us and become part of the UofL community in making MLK Day a “day on, not a day off.” Contact talktous@uoflelsb.org with any questions!
