Day of Service

On Monday, January 19, 2015, La Sallian students, faculty, staff and alumni will team up with members of their community and go into the surrounding neighborhood to do service projects for various organizations. The day serves as not only an opportunity for the La Sallian community to give back, but also as a way to reflect on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the implications of the holiday honoring him.

If you would like to be a part of what is sure to be an incredible experience, you can sign up here on this website by clicking on “Register for the Day of Service.”

Before the day itself, you will receive an e-mail at the address you provide telling you where you will be going that day, as well as any other information you will need to know. Everyone will be leaving from and returning to La Salle University.

Volunteers will report ┬áto the Dan Rodden Theater on La Salle’s main campus and from there all the groups will disperse to go to their assigned places. There will be staff members there directing you to where you need to go.

The following will be the schedule for the day:
