A Month of Service and Reflection
January 15 @ 8:00 am - January 31 @ 11:59 pm
Throughout the month of January in observance of the MLK Holiday and the National Day of Service, we invite you to join us in supporting our community through COVID safe service. The Duke Office of Durham and Community Affairs is hosting a virtual food drive through the Interfaith Food Shuttle and a book drive through Book Harvest.
A virtual food drive serves as a wonderful opportunity to support efforts that combat food insecurity and hunger in North Carolina while also remaining safe at home. To contribute to this virtual fundraiser, please visit here.
To contribute to the Book Harvest drive, donate gently used children’s books to support children’s literacy in Durham. Book donation locations include the East Campus Store (1328 Campus Drive), NC Mutual Life Building Lobby (411 W. Chapel Hill Street) and The Lobby Shop (125 Science Drive).
This event is sponsored by the 2021 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Committee. For more information about this and other MLK events, visit https://mlk.duke.edu.
