Students show strong support for MLK Day of Service

MLK DAY OF SERVICEApproximately 150 Muskingum students turned out to lend a hand locally to the national Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, held January 19.  Across Muskingum and Guernsey counties, students gave their time in a variety of locations with many different activities.   

"The Martin Luther King Day of Service activities provided Muskingum students with opportunities to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service to a number of local nonprofit agencies in Muskingum and Guernsey counties,” explained Stacey Allan, coordinator of Muskingum’s Day of Service and Director of Greek Affairs. 

The agencies where students served included:

Zanesville:  Christ’s Table, Bethel Community Center and the Zanesville Animal Shelter.
Cambridge:  Cambridge Unity Presbyterian Church.
New Concord:  New Concord Day Care, Friendship Baptist Church Preschool; College Drive Presbyterian Church, Beckett House, New Concord Methodist Church, Muskingum’s Brown Chapel and on-campus activities.
Lore City:  Lore City Methodist Church Food Distribution.
