M.L.K Day of Service
Western Washington University invites students, faculty, staff and the greater community to participate in impactful community service as we reflect on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. We invite you to join us for a free community breakfast as we honor the spirit of Dr. King and participate in one of many service opportunities throughout our community.
How to Participate
There are two ways the Western community can participate:
- Volunteer for specific service projects by going to the Volunteer Center of Whatcom County’s MLK Day Page. Additional opportunities can be found at VCWC’s mail volunteer page.
- Volunteer with community organizations, groups or communities of faith you know.
WWU students who also RSVP at the WIN MLK Day of Service event will have their participation noted on their WWU Involvement Record.
