Conway Institute of Music

CONWAY — The University of Central Arkansas will host volunteer activities in honor of the 25th annual Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service.

On Monday, Jan. 20, from noon to 3 p.m., volunteers will meet at the Conway Ministry Center to clean and prepare warming stations for homeless patrons to use and to make fire kits for the unsheltered homeless. The center is located at 701 Polk Street.

“We are really honored to be able to participate in this national day of service, which will allow our students and community members to make a positive difference in memory of so many others who have done the same,” said Lesley Graybeal, director of Service-Learning at UCA.

Service-day activities are open to community volunteers and participants. Anyone who wishes to volunteer can sign up by visiting uca.edu/go/servicedays or by contacting Victoria Mays at (501) 852-0245.
