Campbell Law Participates in MLK Day of Service
RALEIGH, N.C. – Answering the call to give back to their community and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., more than 50 Campbell Law students along with faculty and staff members participated in a Day of Caring by working on a variety of service projects in Wake County on Monday, January 17.
Raleigh area nonprofits and municipal agencies that benefited from the work of Law School teams included:
City of Raleigh Parks & Recreation Organization
Raleigh First Baptist Church Clothing Ministry
Marbles Kids’ Museum
Shepherd's Table Food Kitchen
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Farm
“The Day of Caring was a wonderful way to both serve our community and honor Dr. King,” said Mary Helen Prince, 3L Student Bar Association representative. “Not only were we able to help agencies in Wake County, but we were also able to bond with our classmates and faculty outside the classroom. It was a great day.”
