MSUM Students Continue Service in the Name of Dr. King

Students donnated their time on Tuesday to help out and the food pantry and celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.

MSUM’s Black Student Union has found a way to extend their celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and give back.

As part of an official kickoff to their extended celebration of Black History month, over a dozen students from multiple student organizations donated a few hours of their time to help out of the Emergency Food Pantry in Fargo.

Students helped make birthday bags, decorate the lobby, collect box tops and stock food.

The President of MSUM’s┬áBlack Student Union said she was happy to see such a diverse crowd show up.

“Martin Luther King Jr. obviously cared a lot about giving and giving back to your community specifically and we thought that doing a service project in his honor was a great way to bring the community together for the greater good,” said President Lexi Byler.

The Emergency Food Pantry said it’s always looking for volunteers.

You can volunteer your time by calling the Pantry at (701)-237-9337 or by sending them a message through their website.
