"Make it a Day On, Not a Day Off,"
Penn State’s Six Western Campuses Join Forces as
Tribute to Martin Luther King Jr.
Monday, Jan. 21, Penn State DuBois

In honor of the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., student volunteers from Penn State New Kensington and other Penn State campuses in western Pennsylvania will take on community service projects Monday, Jan. 21, in the local area.

Billed as "Make it a Day On, Not a Day Off," the activities are a part of the University's celebration of King's birthday. January 21 is a federal holiday, and there are no classes that day. The multi-campus community service project is an annual event that moves around the region. DuBois is the host campus this year. New Kensington was the host in 2012.

New Kensington students, along with their counterparts from the Penn State campuses of Beaver, Fayette, Greater Allegheny, and Shenango will travel in groups to various community organizations in the DuBois area.
