Because of the winter storm expected over the weekend and into early next week, the schedule of events for Heidelberg University’s celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day has been revised.

We are postponing our food and hygiene collection to a later date. In the meantime, please take the opportunity to make a cash gift that may be used immediately by people who need food and hygiene items.
