The date for the volunteer hours is creeping up on sophomore students. The turn in date is Jan. 31, where all sophomore students have to have completed 12 service hours. SoCLC has been reminding and telling students, that have a lot of hours left to start volunteering. But there are still countless students that do not have all their hours done.

Martin Luther King  day is a day off, but students and people in  the community should consider it a day on. A day to recognize all the things that King stood up for, and start making a change yourself.

All students not just sophomores should take this opportunity to volunteer and make the change that King was fighting to see. MLK day is on Jan. 21, right before the turn in date for volunteer hours.

Students can research and find hundreds of organizations that host volunteer opportunities on MLK day.

Aside from this there are countless volunteer ideas that any student can do at their own home without the help of an organization.

  1. Host a Teddy Bear and Friends Drive. Students can collect used or new stuffed animals and then donate them to a homeless shelter for new families that arrive.
  2. Best Face Forward collect unused or unwanted makeup and skin care products for abused women in shelters.
  3. Bring a smile to the homeless, stuff a pair of socks or a hat with granola bars and water bottles and pass to homeless when you see them on the street.
  4. Help the elderly, go to different homes with elders and ask if they need help with shoveling or racking the lawn.
  5. Care for the furry ones, volunteer at a homeless shelter, and give some love to the animals.
  6. Stand up against hunger, people struggle with hunger every single day, collect non perishables from neighbors and friends and bring to a food shelter.

These are just a few of the countless things that anyone could do during MLK day. By helping others on MLK day you are doing more than just taking a day off, you are taking a day on.
