Ron Cook's video of Grossmont and Cuyamaca college students washing vans at Home of Guiding Hands
Students from Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges heeded Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s clarion call to do good for others by extending the MLK Day of Service to Saturday, Feb. 4, when student leaders and other volunteers joined together at the Home of Guiding Hands to wash and clean the nonprofit group’s service fleet of vans.
The civil rights icon once said, “Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” Each year, Americans across the country honor King answer that question by coming together on the Martin Luther King holiday in mid-January to serve their neighbors and communities. The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's National Call to Service Initiative.
For more than 40 years, the Home of Guiding Hands has been providing residential support and training services to those with developmental disabilities.
