Southern Adventist University Honors Martin Luther King Jr. Through Service For 26th Year

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Southern Adventist University students and employees will spend Jan. 21 as they have every Martin Luther King Jr. Day for 26 years: serving their community. Approximately 1,000 participants will join together on Southern’s MLK Service Day to serve local organizations and community members within the Chattanooga area.  

One of the projects on this year’s schedule is with a nonprofit that has just entered the Chattanooga area: Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP), an organization founded in Idaho with chapters located across the United States. This MLK Service Day, Southern students will help build bunkbeds for local children who currently do not have beds to sleep on. Once the beds are completed, SHP will deliver them to needy families, complete with mattresses, pillows, and bedding. 

This year, Southern is partnering with more than 35 organizations including the Creative Discovery Museum, Salvation Army, American Red Cross, Lookout Mountain Conservancy and the Samaritan Center.
