The students, staff, and faculty of North Carolina A&T honored Dr. King’s legacy by partnering with Habitat Greensboro for their 2023 MLK Days of Service. From Friday, January 13, through Monday, January 16, nearly 400 Aggies helped build a better community through shelter.

Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve,” Dr. King said. “You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Throughout the weekend, students participated in beautification projects, including the cleanup of Douglas Park and the MLK parade route, painting and landscaping of Eastside Park Community Center, and building a ramp for an elderly homeowner in Ole Asheboro community. Volunteers also built four playhouses to be donated to deserving children and completed multiple tasks within Habitat Greensboro’s Restore Operations.

Habitat Greensboro COO Ruthie Richardson-Robinson shared, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the hundreds of North Carolina A&T State University student and staff volunteers who participated in the Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend of Service in commemoration of 2023 MLK Day. With your help, we were able to complete a great number of repair and beautification projects. We truly couldn’t have done it without you. North Carolina A&T State University really shined the entire weekend, and we look forward to our next opportunity to partner.”
