Join Lewis-Clark State College for a Day of Service!

Lewis-Clark State College-Monday, January, 17th, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy, LCSC students and folks from the surrounding community will be serving those in need, going door-to-door promoting sustainability, participating in creek clean-ups, painting and spending time with the elderly.  LCSC anticipates more than 100 participants for this day of service, which aims to meet community service needs.

The event begins in the LCSC Williams Conference Center at 10:00 a.m.  Refreshments will be provided.  Following a speech from local motivational speaker Durbin Davis, volunteers will be assigned to one of several service projects and given instructions.  Non-profits involved include the Willow Center Inc. for Grieving Children, Wedgewood Terrace, PCEI, Jack O’Conner Center, the Heritage House, the Food Bank and the Humane Society. 

In addition, volunteers will be going door-to-door passing out reusable shopping bags containing an energy efficient light bulb (CFL) and an energy-saving tips flyer, printed on 100 percent recycled paper, to area residents.  The LC Service Corps thanks Avista for donating 200 CFLs and the flyers for this activity.

Service projects will wrap up at about 4:00 p.m.  Volunteers will then be invited to return to the Williams Conference Center for a chili dinner.  Following the dinner, volunteers are welcome to attend a candlelight procession beginning at the LCSC Amphitheater at 6:00 p.m.  Rev. Happy Watkins, from Spokane’s New Hope Baptist Church, will give his rendition of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and Sesitshaya Marimba Ensemble will perform African and Caribbean music at the LCSC Activities Center.
