Students working on MLK Day Service Project

Service Projects

For the third year running, The College of Wooster has proudly partnered with United Way of Wayne & Holmes Counties to bring together both on-campus and off-campus service opportunities for the entire Wooster community.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Event kicks off with Flex for Good, which is sponsored by Wooster Volunteer Network, Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), and United Way. This campaign takes students’ left over FLEX dollars and allows them to buy healthy snacks and hygiene items in the C-Store in December (leave them in the bins outside the C-Store). Students, staff, and Faculty can purchase/donate healthy snacks and hygiene items from the C-Store at The College of Wooster, or bring items in to donate.  Then, these items will be sorted and distributed on MLK Day as an on-campus service project.
Sign up for this fun, fast-paced on-campus experience.

United WayOff-campus opportunities for service are coordinated by our local United Way, of which The College of Wooster has long been a proud partner. For the 2018 MLK DAY of Service, we are working with the following agencies: Viola Startzman Clinic, Wee Care Learning Center, Local Roots, Holly House, Salvation Army of Wooster, OneEighty, People to People, Wooster Community Hospital, Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, Brookdale Senior Center, Friendtique, Learn ‘N Play, YMCA, Danbury Woods Senior Center, and more.
Be sure to sign up for these events. Places go very quickly, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible.
