Students Volunteer on MLK Day
Posted on: January 14, 2014
About a hundred Mt. Hood Community College students will dedicate their day off from classes Jan. 20 by participating in the area’s 5th annual MLK National Day of Service, a collaboration among MHCC, Oregon CampusCompact and six other area colleges and universities.
The MHCC Saints will join more than 1,000 other college students to fix, clean and prepare schools and neighborhoods in eastern Multnomah County. In addition to these beautification projects, the student volunteers will focus on career and college readiness by creating resource and information kits for approximately 7,000 local high school juniors.
