MLK Day of Service

Instead of taking the "day off," many students and their families use the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to honor Dr. King and his legacy by serving others. Volunteers work together to make craft kits for the children staying at the Ronald McDonald House, assemble sandwiches for the Corpus Christi soup kitchen, create artwork for the residents at Stella Maris, package wash kits for the recipients of Meals on Wheels, tie blankets for the animals at the ASPCA, make pans of lasagna for the elderly residents of Roland Heights Tower, and decorate cards for sick children and enlisted men and women.
