Students to honor Martin Luther King with community service projects

January 09, 2013

In honor of the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., student volunteers from Penn State New Kensington and other Penn State campuses in western Pennsylvania will take on community service projects Jan. 21, in the area. Billed as A Day On, Not A Day Off the activities are a part of the University's celebration of King's birthday. Jan. 16 is a federal holiday and there are no classes. The multi-campus community service project is an annual event that moves around the region. DuBois is the host campus this year. New Kensington was the host in 2012. New Kensington students, along with their counterparts from the Penn State campuses of Beaver, Fayette, Greater Allegheny and Shenango will travel in groups to various community organizations in the DuBois area.
