1-08-2015: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to be Observed with Service

On Monday, January 19 from 8:30 to noon in the Student Center on the Barton Campus, Greenville Technical College will observe Martin Luther King Day with a series of service projects. In addition to an education station which will inform participants about the day and what it means, teams will rotate through stations preparing sandwiches for the Salvation Army, creating sensory beanbags for children served by the Meyer Center, making fleece blankets for residents of NHC and patients at the Shriners Hospitals for Children, and assembling toys for the Humane Society.

One of the college’s largest service initiatives, the Day of Service strives to bring together the college with the community at large and community members are invited to participate. Sign up online or contact Tomeika Bennett at (864) 250-8825 or fye@my.gvltec.edu by the registration deadline on Friday, January 16. The day is led by the Greenville Technical College First Year Experience (FYE) program in observance of Dr. King’s vision of change through love and selflessness.
