MLK Day of Service

January 25, 2014

"Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

One of Dr. King's greatest visions was a world with communities working together to address their challenges. MLK Day of Service is an opportunity for students in the IC community to perform service at organizations and agencies in the Greater Ithaca area. It is our time to remember that we have a responsibility to provide for our local community. Ithaca College partnered with the following organizations:




*Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit (TCAT) has generously assisted with student transportation during MLK Day of Service.
