Stockton honors Dr. King with Day of Service

  • News

Stockton University's community came out for a Day of Service on Monday, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

It was the 20th year that the school held the event, with nearly 900 volunteers working as part of more than 30 service projects.

Volunteers came together at all four locations: Galloway Township, Atlantic City, Hammonton and Woodbine.

More than 600 community kits were created and then donated to the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.

The kits included personal items such as toothbrushes, soap, bath wash, shampoo and conditioner.

Another service project involved making and decorating hand puppets for hospitalized children at AtlantiCare's City and Mainland campuses.

The goal of the Day of Service is to provide an intensive, community-wide experience for students and to introduce them to partners that they can serve long-term and develop an ongoing relationship with, explained Brian Jackson, the chief operating officer of Stockton’s Atlantic City campus.
