The messages, all 350 of them were meant to uplift and thank the first responders and educators in Bartholomew County. 

“I love you to the highest number,” read one. “Thank you for doing your job so I can stay safe,” read another.

Every student at CSA Lincoln participated in a MLK Day of Service organized by United Way of Bartholomew County’s Volunteer Action Center.

United Way of Bartholomew County annually organizes and participates locally in the national MLK Day of Service. On this day, Americans honor Dr. King through service projects that strengthen our community and empower individuals.

The students as CSA Lincoln joined hundreds of others in our community in writing the thank you cards. Each card was designed by C4 graphic design students.

This project was chosen for 2021’s MLK Day of Service as a way to thank some of the frontline workers who have helped propel Bartholomew County residents through the pandemic.

CSA Lincoln educators annually plan a community service project called Serve A-Thon Fundraiser.  School administrators chose MLK Day of Service to give back.

“As a ‘Thank You’ to our community this year for supporting Serve-a-Thin, we were happy to give back to our community this way,” said Shawna Netser, project manager at the school. “We believe that giving back to our community is critical in students developing their understanding of concepts like empathy, service and the importance of helping those in need.”
