ULM and Delta partner for MLK Day of Service

Published January 12, 2014

The University of Louisiana at Monroe and Louisiana Delta Community College (LDCC) will once again partner for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service project, on Monday, Jan. 19.

Students, faculty, and staff participating in the service project are now collecting winter garments such as hats, scarves, socks, gloves, and more for the children, men and women residents at the Wellspring.

Wellspring is a nonprofit which provides services for those dealing with domestic violence, sexual assault, homelessness, and child endangerment. Wellspring also serves veterans.

According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, “The MLK Day of Service is a part of ‘United We Serve,’ a national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.”
Students, faculty, staff, and the community are invited to donate items for the service project. Those interested may bring items to Strauss Hall, Room 208, located on the ULM campus, or to Student Services, Suite 144, located on the LDCC campus.

Items may be delivered from now until 10 a.m., Monday, Jan. 19.

The ULM and LDCC cohort will personally deliver the items to the Wellspring at 11 a.m., Jan. 19.
