the MLK day events held on Friday, Jan. 16 and Monday, Jan. 19 were very successful. On Friday, faculty and staff enjoyed a wonderful program with special recognition for Candice Capers for her 17 years of service to the MLK committee. We’ll sure miss you, Candice!
Lots of “kindergarten kits” were assembled for Durham’s Partnership for Children, and warm clothing items were delivered to residents of McDougald Terrace. The Food Pantry offered departments and programs the opportunity to “adopt” the pantry for a period of time. Contact Sally Parlier if you have not yet signed up!
And on Monday, faculty, staff, and students gathered in the Multi-Purpose Room and the Cafeteria to package meals for the United Way and InterFaith Food Shuttle, which will be distributed to needy families in our area. Students from Duke and NCCU joined in along with members of Rotary Clubs throughout Durham.
Note: there are a number of XL and 2XL “MLK Day 2014” t-shirts left over from Monday’s event that are available to anyone who wants them (free of charge). They are in the Faculty/Staff lounge on the first floor of the Wynn Student Services Center.
