Veritas MLK Service Day
MLK Service Day - 2018
Fourth Annual MLK Service Day
In 1994, former President Bill Clinton signed the King Holiday and Service Act into law, turning MLK day into an official day of service. Veritas will honor this day on Jan 15 by holding a community day of service instead of classes. We are excited about all the service opportunities for you and your family to serve together on Martin Luther King Day this year. Due to the amount of parent involvement required to make this day a success, it is not mandatory for your child to participate; however, we strongly encourage you to take this opportunity and serve our community as a family.
New for 2018: There will no be any activities at either Veritas Academy CLC or AOC campus. Start and end times vary by project.
- Fri, Dec 8 - Wed, Dec 20: Sign up to serve
- Fri, Dec 20: Sign-ups close, all Driver Affidavits, and non-profit forms completed and turned-in to any Veritas Academy office
- Mon, Jan 15: Serve
