Description

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a National Day of Service honoring the work and legacy of an American civil rights leader. MLK once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"  Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on MLK Day to serve their neighbors and communities.

So let's honor this day at Ross!

ROSS-WIDE MLK VOLUNTEER DAY
Monday, Jan 15th
10am-11:30am (optional): MLK Symposium Keynote Watch Party in Robertson Auditorium
12-2pm (pop by at any time): Assemble lunch bags + toiletry kits in Robertson Lobby
*Light breakfast + lunch will be provided on first-come, first-serve basis

We've partnered with Food Gatherers (an Ann Arbor-based food rescue and food bank program), The Education Project for Homeless Youth (a collaboration between Ozone House and Washtenaw Intermediate School District), and Ronald McDonald House Charities (a "home away from home" for families of children with serious illness or injury) to assemble lunch bags and toiletry kits on MLK Day. So come by to watch the MLK Keynote Hill Harper and then stick around to assemble a few kits. Supplies will be provided so just bring yourself and some friends!
