Across the country, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is celebrated as a National Day of Service. This year, The University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning is organizing volunteers to give back to the community for its GatorServe event on Monday, Jan. 15, 2018.
Volunteers will participate by performing small home improvements and repairs to area homes owned by senior citizen residents, disabled individuals or veterans. Projects may also be needed at non-profit organizations, small businesses and churches.
For example, volunteers may be asked to help with mowing a lawn, planting a flower bed, changing lightbulbs or painting rooms. (Assignments will be shared with volunteers prior to the event).
GatorServe Day will kick off at UHD Campus with volunteer registration and check-in from 8 to 8:45 a.m. on the South Deck. A t-shirt, light breakfast and a picnic lunch will be provided.
The event is open to all students, staff, faculty, alumni, family and friends–age 16 and older.
