Holy Family University’s Diversity Team will hold a day of service to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Sunday, January 15, from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm. Students and faculty are will be visiting Jewish Relief Services in Northeast Philadelphia to help prepare food for local families in need and area food banks.
“The Diversity Team did this activity last year to commemorate MLK Day of Service and the small group of students and faculty that went did an excellent job and gained a lot from the experience of giving back to our immediate community,” said Nicole Stokes-DuPass, Associate Professor of Sociology for the School of Arts and Sciences.
“This year, the group will work for a few hours at the distribution center preparing dry food and produce that will be delivered to needy families and food banks in our area. This event and day of service aligns well with Holy Family’s mission and core values. Giving back to our community and to those in need recognizes the dignity of each person and the oneness of our human family. Part of the experience of an education at Holy Family University is to impart an appreciation of lifelong responsibilities to God, society, and self.”
