Community Engagement & Service

Thank You!

The Center for Community Engagement & Service would like to thank all 244 American University volunteers that participated in the 2016 MLK Day of Service. Volunteers completed a total of 1,248 hours of service during this “Day On” at 13 community partner sites. This year the MLK Student Leadership Council incorporated a veteran’s initiative into the day of service and provided service to over 900 veterans and military families. We would also like to thank Strosniders Hardware, Giant Food, AU Bookstore, and Bethesda Bagels for co-sponsoring this year’s day of service and providing donations.
