MLK Day of Service




In the second annual MLK Day of Service hosted by High Point University, we have worked alongside our High Point neighbors to arrange various service opportunities for HPU faculty and students and other community members. If you are interested in serving as a project leader, please read through the following project descriptions and contact Shannon Barr. If you are interested in volunteering, please read through the project descriptions below, then click the Volunteer button.

All projects are eligible for a box lunch. The Hartley YMCA is happy to offer childcare for children (K – 8th grade) to all volunteers between 7:30 AM and 6:00 PM. You will be prompted in the registration link to indicate whether or not you would like to take advantage of these opportunities.

If you have any questions or trouble with registering, please contact Anna Mahathey, HPU Civic Leadership Coordinator and AmeriCorps VISTA, at or 336-841-9491.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'” Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. Read more about the MLK Day of Service at
