University of Tampa students, faculty and staff will honor the legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a day of service to the Tampa Bay community on Saturday, Jan. 20.
'Through the PEACE Volunteer Center's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service students get the opportunity to celebrate Dr. King's dedication to activism by participating in community service in the Tampa Bay area,' said Liz Ho Sing Loy-Keiler '19, a student coordinator in UT's PEACE Volunteer Center.
Ho Sing Loy-Keiler said just as Dr. King's activism continues to inspire many, the PEACE Volunteer Center also hopes to inspire new UT students and introduce them to the importance of activism and volunteerism.
Participants will volunteer their time and energy at several area nonprofits, including:
The event begins at 9 a.m. with registration in the Vaughn Center Courtyard (rain location is Vaughn Center Reeves Theater). Volunteers will then travel by van to a volunteer location.
