Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
In partnership with Student Recreation and Wellness Center, Office of Community Engagement took more than 20 CSUSB students and staff to volunteered with L.A. Works on Monday, January 20, 2020 for Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service. The volunteer project was to help beautify the campus Orville Wright Middle School, a STEAM Magnet School. Our CSUSB students made Monday a “day on, not a day off” by serving alongside 1,350 volunteers to build and paint 30 benches, paint 27 murals and 606 feet of lockers, landscape, and paint hallw ays throughout the school.
We’d asked our CSUSB volunteers what made this day memorable and one said that “the best part was teaming up with others to create something special for the students.” We hope this encourages our CSUSB students to continue to leave their paw print on the community and also to continue the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
