In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his devotion to serving others, Troy University’s Office of Civic Engagement will coordinate three Days of Service next week, in which students can give back to the local community.
The MLK Days of Service take place Tuesday, Jan. 21 through Thursday, Jan. 23, and the Office of Civic Engagement will be working with student volunteers on a variety of service projects throughout the city of Troy.
Among the list of projects include outdoor improvements to the Civic Engagement outreach center, cleanup at a local elementary school nature trail and coordinating after-school activities at a local preschool.
“Service is woven in the fabric of our campus and our students, and I think it’s a very important part of the Trojan spirit and the Trojan way,” said Lauren Cochran, Coordinator of Civic Engagement. “We really encourage all our students to serve and give back, because we live in a country and a place where we are very blessed. Around Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we want to pay tribute to somebody who truly lived a life of service. We’re grateful to give students this opportunity to roll up their sleeves and give back to others.”
