MANSFIELD, Pa. – More than 60 Mansfield University students and employees logged roughly 200 hours of community service as part of ‘A Day of Service’ to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 20.

Teams of Mansfield University volunteers served at five sites in the area in Second Chance Animal Care Sanctuary, the Mansfield Area YMCA, My Neighbor’s Closet, the Southern Tier Food Bank, and The Green Home. The students represented eight on-campus organizations. Marie Domenech, Director of the International Office & New Student Orientation, was the primary organizer of the event with several other MU employees assisting.

Monday marked the 25th anniversary of the MLK Day of Service that celebrates the civil rights leader’s life and legacy. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.
