In honor of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the University of Iowa community will focus on the areas of hunger and homelessness that affect the Iowa City community by collecting items at local stores for the Johnson County Shelter House and Crisis Center. Volunteers are needed at each store throughout the day to ask for and collect donations. Please give some of your time to help those in need.

The annual MLK Day of Service will take place on Monday, January 18th, 2016 between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. You can sign up for a shift or volunteer the whole day! The MLK Day of Service will take place at three different Hy-Vee Locations:
