Rise Against Hunger

January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Rise Against Hunger, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day food packaging, is from 1p.m. to 3 p.m. in Shingleton Hall, Shingleton Gymnasium.  In Dr. King’s book Where do we go from here: Chaos or Community he says “This is the great new problem of mankind. We have inherited … a great ‘world house’ in which we have to live together — black and white, Easterner and Westerner, Gentile and Jew, Catholic and Protestant, Muslim and Hindu … Because we can never again live apart, we must learn somehow to live with each other in peace.” In honor of his legacy we come together as people of various faith backgrounds to work in harmony for the greater good. Community members, students, staff and faculty are invited to sign up for this Interfaith event from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Meals are distributed in America and around the world to those experiencing hunger. Those who wish to participate must sign up via the Martin Luther King, Jr. Week of Service Sign Up Form. Community members, students, faculty and staff are welcome. For more information, visit www.riseagainsthunger.org or contact Spiritual Life at 540/535-3546. This event is held as a part of our week long celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
