MLK 2018 Day of Service: Volunteer Registration


MLK Day of Service 2018

Saturday, January 13 (8:30am-2:00pm)

UCSC is excited to partner with UChicago Lab SchoolsUChicago Charter School, Rise Against Hunger and the Kraft Heinz Company Foundation, and local community organizations to celebrate and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  We welcome UChicago students, staff, faculty, alumni, and family members (including school-aged children) to volunteer with us to build a beloved community.  We expect more than 300 in attendance.


Volunteers will contribute various service projects at more than a dozen off-campus service sites on the south side. Projects will include organizing and cleaning spaces, sorting books, tutoring, preparing crafts, and painting. Click here to learn about the missions and proposed service projects of our off-site community partner organizations.


There will also be an on-site micronutrient meal packaging activity in partnership with the nonprofit Rise Against Hunger and Kraft's Micronutrient Campaign, which will include an educational component before and after service on hunger awareness.  Tasks at the on-site project will include funneling ingredients; weighing and sealing boxing packaged meals; and moving meals to a truck for shipping.  We aim to package more than 30,000 meals that will be delivered to developing countries.  Click here for video to learn more about this activity!
