Southern Adventist University students, employees, and alumni will continue the university’s tradition of honoring Martin Luther King Jr. through service to the community on Monday, Jan. 20. Approximately 1,000 participants will join together on Southern’s MLK Service Day to serve local organizations and community members within the Chattanooga area.
This year, Southern is partnering with more than 45 organizations including the American Red Cross, Chambliss Center for Children, Chattanooga Community Kitchen, Salvation Army, the Samaritan Center, and Sleep in Heavenly Peace.
One of the new partnerships this year is with Erlanger Health System. Throughout the day, a lineup of volunteer student musical groups will perform at Erlanger Medical Mall, bringing cheer to patients, employees, and visitors. In addition to students from the School of Music, individuals from across campus plan to participate.
