On Saturday, Jan. 15, more than 100 students from Barry University will celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. by participating in Barry’s annual MLK Day Challenge and dedicating a day of service to a community cause. This year, volunteers will spend the day landscaping, cleaning and painting at two locations: Miami Northwestern Senior High School and Arcola Lakes Park.
Working media are invited to attend this event at both locations from 9 to 11 a.m.
The event, sponsored by Barry’s Office of Student Activities and De Porres Center for Community Service, will conclude with a reflection, where volunteers will express how they were able to grow in the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. and as people of good will through the service project.
