Honor King’s legacy through service

The  Martin Luther King Days of Service, the university’s largest campus-wide community service event, has gotten even bigger. It now includes two days of service activities and a two-week food drive, all of which recognize King’s life and legacy and encourage members of the Carolina community to make a difference in the greater Columbia area.

Faculty and staff who participate will receive a bag and a list of the pantry’s most needed food items. Filled bags should be returned to the Campus Life Center (Russell House 227) by Friday, Jan. 24.

During the Days of Service — Monday, Jan. 20 and Saturday, Jan. 25 — the university will provide transportation for students, faculty and staff from the university to community agencies in need of volunteers.
