“On January 18th—MLK Day—millions of volunteers around the country will give back to their communities and we hope you will join them! Last year the Holden Center sent over 200 students, faculty and staff out into the community and this year will hope to make an even larger impact. We are working with 12 community partners: Walama Restoration, Hendricks Park, Arc of Lane County, Ophelia’s Place, St Vincent de Paul, and many more.
Registration is required and available online at serve.uoregon.edu under Service Events.
There will be two community service shifts (9-12pm and 1-4pm) on the 18th.
Thank you for working with the Holden Center and helping your community!”
