CCNY community volunteers for MLK Day of Service on Jan. 18

The City College of New York honors the late Martin Luther King Jr. with the annual MLK Day of Service on Saturday, Jan. 18. The event is presented by the Department of Student Life and Leadership Development.

From 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m., CCNY volunteers will combine efforts to help repack and distribute 50,000 pounds of donated food at the Food Bank For New York City’s warehouse and distribution center in the Bronx.

CCNY will sort, pack, box, weigh and label food items to distribute them to hungry New Yorkers. They will receive a free t-shirt for their efforts. 

If interested in volunteering, please RSVP here and sign in with your CCNY credentials. Additional information with details will be sent to all those who RSVP, and there is a waitlist if the event is full.
