The Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service 2021

Monday, January 18, all day – join us!

The entire Drew community is invited to join us this Monday, January 18, for our annual Day of Service celebrating and honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy.

MLK Day is a national day of service, meant to encourage all Americans to improve their communities. This Monday, we can do that as one Drew community, through programs and service projects planned in response to Dr. King’s enduring question: “What are you doing for others?”

Presented by Student Engagement, Civic Engagement, Change Builders, and the Office of the University Chaplain.


In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. ”
The Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
