Join MCC's Annual MLK Day of Service

Each year more than 500 students, faculty, staff and community members make it a Day On instead of a Day Off by celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy of humanity and service. This is an amazing opportunity to be a part of a vital MCC tradition as well as a national event celebrating community service.

Service is a great way to get together and have fun while meeting new people! - MCC Student

It is a great way to honor all of the hard work that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did so what better way to honor him than giving back to the community by helping out! - MCC Student

If everyone does a little, than we can achieve big things. Someone once said that service is the way we pay rent for living on this planet. I am way behind on "paying rent" so I have a lot of things I need to do and I am glad to be a part of MCC's MLK Day of Service. - MCC Faculty
