Sanford-Brown College – Milwaukee: Service Learning Event for Martin Luther King Day

January 24, 2012 General, Service-Learning 0 Comments

On January 16th, 2012 for MLK Day, our SBC-Milwaukee students (along with 263 other community volunteers) participated in a Service Learning Event to assist in a Fire Alarm Awareness Day for the 4th Annual Martin Luther King Day of Service. The Red Cross of Southeastern WI, the Milwaukee Fireman’s Brotherhood and Hope International teamed up in a door-to-door canvasing of multiple local neighborhoods to make sure the community residents had working smoke detectors in their homes. They distributed Fire Safety Door Hangers, gave educational material and answered questions regarding fire safety. This included encouraging residents to have an escape plan for the household. Our students from the Business and other programs, assisted in registration for the volunteers utilizing skills learned in their didactic classes.

Organizational competency skills were taped to lead the individual teams (as Co-captains) into the community as they documented interaction with the community members. This was useful for the local organizers to know how many households were contacted. For the Milwaukee event in total for all community volunteers: 8,200 Fire Safety Door Hangers were distributed, 8,200 households visited and 1,163 conversations were held. This information is then used to keep statistics on the benefit of this grassroots effort.
