"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?"
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


On January 18th, over 200 UNA students, faculty, and staff came together in commemoration of Dr. King and the fight against injustice. Together, we addressed a community need by packaging 33,000 meals that were distributed throughout local food pantries.

Following the service project was a remembrance march and short program hosted by the Office of Diversity and Institutional Equity.

 

On January 16, 2017, we'll be partnering with Numana, Inc. for a second time with a goal of 50,000 meals! Mark your calendars now!
