MLK Service Opportunity - Take the Plunge!


Contributed by Deborah Mohlenhoff

We, at the Center for Student Leadership and Involvement, are pleased to announce an opportunity for faculty and staff to participate in the annual Polar Plunge on Friday, January 16, 2004. We are holding the plunge in conjunction with the weekend-long celebration of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, observed this year on Monday, January 19.

King once said, "Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve." On January 16, you can serve by working with a group of 7-8 students at over 10 community agencies doing a variety of hands-on projects.

Sign up to do a half day (9 a.m. to noon or noon to 3 p.m.) or a full day (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) of service. Sites include Ithaca Neighborhood Housing, Mental Health Association, YMCA, Caroline Elementary School, Alterra, Significant Elements, Challenge Industries, and more! Breakfast and lunch is included for all participants.

Please consider taking part in this service project in honor of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and his dedication to serving your local community.

To sign up or for more information, e-mail Deb Mohlenhoff or visit the MLK-Polar Plunge website.
