MLK Week Day of Service with quote "...only when it is dark enough can you see the stars."

For the past several years the Center for Student Life has coordinated service engagements throughout New York in support of NYU MLK Week. This year, we will bring volunteers together in one location to assemble personal care kits for the broader New York City community.

Dr. Peggy Morton, Clinical Associate Professor within the Silver School of Social Work, has worked with the New York Public Library to solidify fieldwork placements for graduate students. In their work, the need for personal care items within the community became apparent.

On February 8th, we will assemble 1,000 personal care kits to distribute to agencies across NYC. We need your help to meet this goal! The day will start with a hot breakfast and an overview of the agencies we will be supporting, followed by care kit assembly.
