MLK Day of Service

Though we have canceled in-person elements of our annual Martin Luther King Day of Service, we commemorate Dr. King and his message through a collection of virtual volunteering opportunities and local virtual events that invite us all to reflect on his vision of the Beloved Community.

International Women's Day

International Women's Day takes place every March, and we're pleased to be able to collaborate with the Kent State Women's Center to offer a few service projects through which volunteers can learn about, support, and empower women in local and global communities. Join us on Tuesday, March 8th, 2022 as we jointly observe International Women's Day with a poster session, a panel discussion, and service projects!
