East Stroudsburg University held its 7th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service on Thursday, February 6.

This year ESU teamed up with Pennsylvania Treatment and Healing (PATH), a non-profit community-based program located in East Stroudsburg. PATH offers an intensive adolescent program for students between the ages of 10-18 who meet medical necessity for mental services.

Since the start of the spring 2020 semester ESU students, faculty and staff have been collecting personal items for student in the PATH program including, hats, socks, snacks, and personal hygiene items. During the Day of Service those items were used to make care bags for adolescents in the program.

ESU’s new recovery space, part of the Health & Wellness Center located in the lower level of Sycamore Suites, was also be prominently featured during the Day of Service, as a resource to the community.
