Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day that inspires Americans. Since Congress designated MLK Day as a day of service in 1994, hundreds of thousands of Americans have participated in volunteer acts to commemorate Dr. King’s vision of a better world. According to the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, “The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a ‘Beloved Community.’”
This MLK Day, our Club members performed an act of service for the elderly citizens in our Gloucester County community. They created care packages and letters for nursing home residents in an effort to learn kindness and compassion and to support these vulnerable communities. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe that it is even more crucial to show generosity during these trying times. See photos of the event below!
