The BYU community celebrated the Martin Luther King holiday by donating blood, visiting senior citizens and participating in a candlelit procession from the Bell Tower to the Wilkinson Student Center, where Pastor France A. Davis, from the Calvary Baptist Church in Salt Lake City gave a keynote address.
Cultural Programs Coordinator Mario Pereyra played a major role in organizing Community Outreach Day this year and expressed the university’s excitement at being able to host Davis.
The annual “Walk of Life” started at the Bell Tower at 5:30 p.m. Participants then lit their candles and walked to the WSC. The commemoration portion then began.
Along with the ceremonies, 20 different service events began at 8:30 a.m. Monday morning in the WSC.
Community Outreach Day began in 2009. More than 1,000 participants attended last year.
