In honor of national Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 19, the University of Nebraska at Omaha Office of Civic and Social Responsibility hosted one of the university’s signature service days. This is the second year that UNO has held this event. Projects were held throughout the day at the Open Door Mission, Film Streams, Girl Scouts of Nebraska, Chabad Center, Fontenelle Forest, House of Hope, AIT Worldwide Logistics, AIM, Intercultural Senior Center and Charles Drew Health Center. Volunteers were checked in at 8:30 and given free breakfast and a t-shirt. Then, they were transported via shuttle to the service project sites. The day wrapped up around 1:30 p.m. when volunteers were shuttled back to UNO after a day full of giving. This day of service is an example of how far UNO has come in their efforts to be an altruistic and involved university. With the Carnegie award, UNO has established itself as a leader in community engagement.
