2016 Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service


The MLK Day of Service is the college’s largest volunteer event.  Each year, several hundred faculty, staff and students choose to “make it a day on, not a day off” by volunteering in their communities on this national day of service through the opportunities provided by Macomb Community College.

On Monday, January 18, 2016, please join us at 8:00 am as we celebrate MLK Day with a welcome from the college president, Dr. James Jacobs, followed by the presentation of the MLK Essay Contest winner. Light refreshments will be provided and are sponsored by the Hub. Please bring non-perishable food items to donate to the Student Food Pantry.

Registration is now available for the 2016 MLK Day of Service events.  Select the date below that you wish to register for:
