Students will conduct outreach for Martin Luther King holiday

December 09, 2011

Continuing their tradition of taking “A Day On, Not a Day Off,” many Penn State Beaver students will join students from the western Penn State campuses to conduct community services projects on Martin Luther King Day, Monday, Jan. 16. The day is a holiday for Penn State students.

Every year students from Penn State’s western campuses join forces to conduct outreach efforts in their local communities. This year’s primary coordinating campus is Penn State New Kensington. Robin Schreck, Beaver’s coordinator of student activities and residence life, will take Beaver students to New Kensington to work with them in service projects there.

However, other Beaver students will work locally at a variety of community outreach centers, including Uncommon Grounds in Aliquippa, Beaver County Habitat for Humanity, and the Center for Hope in Ambridge, which offers a food bank, clothing bank, literacy services and life skills training.

For more information about the students’ activities on Martin Luther King Day, contact Schreck at or 724-773-3947.
