Community Service Day January 18 — Saint Leo’s Values in Action

January 11, 2016

Saint Leo University’s Spring Community Service Day will be held Monday, January 18, in conjunction with University Campus’ celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Community Service Day highlights Saint Leo University’s core value of community, and the university’s commitment to fostering the spirt of belonging, unity, and independence.

Florida Supreme Court Justice Peggy A. Quince is the guest speaker and will discuss the importance of Dr. King’s message to combat poverty among American youth. Her presentation is at noon in the Greenfelder-Denlinger Boardrooms of the Student Community Center.

Following her presentation, a children’s fair will be held on campus from 1 to 4 p.m. on the green between the Student Activities Building and Kirk Hall. There will be fun activities such as face painting, sand art, and several inflatables. Saint Leo faculty, students, and student clubs and organizations will host activities for the children.

Admission to both events is free and all are welcome. Parking is available in surface lots or in the campus garage. The university is at 33701 State Road 52, four miles east of Interstate 75 (Exit 285).
