JACKSON, Tenn. – Jan. 13, 2012– Union University will observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day Jan. 16 with three community service opportunities for students, faculty and staff.
Volunteer teams will work at Birth Choice Pregnancy Resource Clinic from 9 a.m.-11 a.m., at the Care Center from 2-4 p.m. and at Hartland Place Apartments from 2-4 p.m.
“This day is a unique opportunity to partner with those across our nation in service projects to various communities,” said Rachel Ware, Union’s director of discipleship. “We hope that in these projects we both honor Dr. King for his powerful legacy of service, and point to an even greater reality of our Savior, Jesus, who came to serve, not to be served.
“We are thankful for the chance that we have to build relationships with those in our community and pray that our time spent serving them would be of benefit to them and to our Union family.”
