Students in field

2018 MLK Day of Service volunteer site signups now open

December 7, 2017

Students gathered for a meal midway through MLK Day of Service 2017. Students can sign up now to volunteer during the 2018 MLK Day of Service.

Students participating in Finlandia University’s third annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service are invited to sign up for their service site now.

Dr. King was a vibrant and dynamic leader for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement. Finlandia University and the local community have combined efforts to renew discussions about equality and diversity awareness as well as provide service to our local community.  In recognition and celebration of this holiday, all regular classes are cancelled so that students and faculty have the opportunity to get out and provide community service.

Sites range from Calumet to Houghton and include activities aimed at helping people of all ages – from toddlers to senior citizens. Volunteer sites include St. Vincent de Paul, Barkell Elementary School in Hancock, The Table Student Needs Pantry, Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly and more!
