IWC to conduct collection drive Monday as part of Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

Jan 18, 2013

Iowa Wesleyan College students and staff will be collecting donations for the Fellowship Cup on Monday, Jan. 21, as part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Volunteers will be at Hy-Vee from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to accept donations.

The collection drive will focus on personal care items and toiletries. The items most needed by the Fellowship Cup are deodorant and toilet paper but any hygiene and personal care items will be accepted.

The event is sponsored by the service-learning office at IWC

The Corporation for National and Community Service leads the annual MLK Day of Service, working with the King Center in Atlanta and thousands of nonprofit groups, faith-based organizations, schools and businesses nationwide.

The annual event was designed to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy.

For more than 40 years, service has been an integral part of the IWC education. Service opportunities are incorporated into the curriculum and available through campus organizations. All students complete service projects prior to graduation.

For more information on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service activity, contact Samantha Johnson, AmericCorps Vista volunteer at IWC at 319-385-6211 or by email at samantha.johnson@iwc.edu.
