Northern Michigan University will honor the memory of Martin Luther King Jr. with a Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 16, at The Woods residence hall complex. All activities are open to the public. The day will kick off with a noon program and free lunch, followed by four service projects and a workshop on volunteerism.
The featured speaker at the noon program in The Woods Lodge will be NMU biology instructor Angela Mohrman, whose goal is to improve inclusion and diversity within STEM education. Lunch will be offered at 12:30.
Service projects will follow from 1-3 p.m. Participants can choose from making fleece blankets for the Women's Shelter; crafting dog toys for UPAWS; decorating cookies for the Jacobetti Home for Veterans; and making cards for Mill Creek Assisted Living residents.
A Skill Builder workshop at 2 p.m. in the Maple Classroom will offer tips and tricks to help find volunteer opportunities best suited to each individual.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is coordinated by the NMU Volunteer Center and the Student Equity and Engagement Center.
