Event Description :

On January 21, 2013, the Multicultural Affairs Center will host the 4th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Collegiate Challenge. This year, 200 student, faculty and staff volunteers will go out into the local community and make their day off school a day on by helping community partners with projects that they may or may not have the time or resources to complete.

The MLK Collegiate Challenge breaks down barriers among participants and between students, faculty & staff participants and the community. Specific services for 2013 are yet to be determined, but past projects have coordinated with Kirksville Manor Care, Twin Pines, The La Plata Food Bank, the Kirksville YMCA, Preferred Family Health Services and many other local agencies.
