Honor MLK with day of service

Citizens recognizing Martin Luther King Jr. Day since it was established in 1986, are encouraged to volunteer on the third Monday every January to honor King’s vision of service.

The local Jackson NAACP Branch encourages everyone in the community to participate with area nonprofits — Mountain Projects, The Community Table and other preferred service groups — in recognition of this historical day.  

All organizations and individuals performing service projects on Jan. 16 — are invited to the Western Carolina University campus for a MLK Unity March. Participants should plan to arrive by 2 p.m. in front of the Hines University Center at the fountain. Alpha Phi Alpha has been hard at work along with WCU Intercultural Affairs, the Black Student Union, The Jackson WCU Student NAACP Unit and the Latino Appreciation Students to plan this year’s MLK Unity March.
