MLK Day of Service

About the MLK Day of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. devoted his life to advancing equality, social justice, and opportunity for all. He once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'". Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day to serve their neighbors and communities. Each year, the Department of Leadership Initiatives invites students to take part in an MLK Day Service Project. In the past, SHSU students have served at SAAFE House, the Huntsville State Park, the Hospitality House, Good Shepherd Mission, and other agencies in the Huntsville community.
