Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Community Engagement Office will host a “day of service” to benefit the Mankato-area community on Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday, Jan. 17) from 1-4 p.m.


The public is welcome to participate in a variety of service projects Monday from 1-4 p.m. by stopping in at the check-in table near Jazzman’s Café on the first floor of Centennial Student Union. Minors should be accompanied by a responsible adult. Because Monday is a national holiday, parking in the University’s visitors pay lot (parking lot 4, near Centennial Student Union) will be free on Monday.


Volunteers are invited to join in a variety of activities that will include making tie blankets for the Connections Shelter, making cards for Cardz for Kidz, putting together laundry pod bundles for several local shelters and more projects.
