MLK Day of Service

Over fifty-two OMA&D student, staff and community volunteers came together at Seattle’s Beacon Hill’s Cheasty Greenspace Park with a unified purpose; to honor Martin Luther King Jr (MLK). The MLK Day of Service has become an OMA&D tradition, serving the community with growing numbers of volunteers each year.
