Gateway Technical College is proud to announce the Third Annual Day of Service associated with Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
A National Day of Service, Martin Luther King Day is widely considered a day on, not a day off. Communities in all 50 states encourage residents to engage in volunteer work.
This is a great opportunity to learn about and invest in the communities in which we all live and work. It offers an opportunity for the community to come together to really connect with the spirit of service, engagement, and conversation. Join Us!
This year, we will be trying something new! Each of Gateway Technical College's three campuses will host projects related to homelessness. In teams of 6, volunteers will learn about homelessness in our region while completing tasks at four stations:
Station 1: Pack Hygiene Bags
Station 2: Make a warm scarf
Station 3: Work together to complete a no-sew tie blanket
Station 4: Create your Action Statement
From 8:00 am - 12:00 pm, groups of 6 start in 1-hour shifts (which start every 30 minutes) to complete the tasks at each of these stations. We expect to be able to pack 100 hygiene bags per campus, 100 scarves per campus, and 30+ blankets. All items will be distributed to homeless shelters in Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth Counties
Sponsorships are needed! If you are interested in sponsoring an activity, station, or other aspects of the day, please contact Madeline Carrera at 262-564-3138.
Registration to GivePulse is not required, however, you must register for a project prior to the start of the Day of Service. Due to the scope of the projects, if you do not register in advance, we may not be able to provide you an opportunity for volunteering the day of. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.We look forward to joining you in service to our community!
