On Monday, Jan. 20, members of the entire GW community volunteered throughout the DC area in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

During the university’s annual celebration of the civil rights leader, 600+ GW volunteers—including a group from the GW Alumni Association (GWAA)—were stationed at 12 sites throughout the DC metro area.

Our friends at GW Today were onhand to catch up with volunteers throughout the day—including GWAA President Steve Frenkil, CCAS BA ’74.

Frenkil, along with 20 members of the alumni community, as well as GW students, faculty and staff, volunteered at the Capitol Hill Campus of Center City Schools.

In an interview with GW Today, Frenkil highlighted the importance of events like the MLK Day of Service.

“One of our focal points that we’ve identified is we want to increase alumni engagement through community service,” Frenkil explained. “And an event like this brings alumni and students together. You have an opportunity to exchange ideas, share experiences and give back to the community.”
