Limestone University's Athletics Department, with assistance from ADAMAH Christian Leadership at Limestone, will host its third annual "Day of Service" on Monday, Jan. 17, as part of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

With the local Meals on Wheels organization being closed for the holiday, Limestone will take over the Meals on Wheels operation by preparing and packaging meals at Stephenson Dining Hall. Meal preparation will be led by Limestone University Dining Services. Meal delivery will be done by student-athletes, ADAMAH members, and staff.

The participation of the student-athletes is being led by Hailey Martin, Senior Women's Administrator. ADAMAH's efforts are being headed up by University Chaplain and program Director Dr. Tom LeGrand.

"After helping out with Meals On Wheels on Monday morning, our ADAMAH students will be working inside the Camp-Swofford Chapel to make it an even more welcoming space for students, faculty, staff, and the community," LeGrand said. "Our goal is to make the chapel a place of fun and fellowship to be used by the Limestone community."

LeGrand added that he is hopeful that Monday's "Day of Service" will not be interrupted by a winter storm predicted for the area this weekend.

In February, ADAMAH will host a speaker and panel discussion to talk about the most effective approaches to serving the needs of others. The ADAHAM students are reading The Weight of Mercy by Rev. Deb Richardson-Moore, a pastor who led Upstate ministries to the homeless for 16 years. After her February appearance at the panel discussion, she will be returning to Limestone later this semester to speak to students.
