How to serve on MLK Day while quarantining at home

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we are reminded to embrace the Civil Rights leader's spirit of service and community, and to give back where we can. Today and every day, we are proud to serve our community! Although community service may look different this year, there are still many ways to get involved this #MLKDay.

Caught between colliding pressures of a pandemic, political unrest and outcries for social justice, this Martin Luther King Day of Service is unlike any other.

I can say this much about Poplar Springs Hospital, Some of the bonds that you build are amazing and the growth I obtain from working for the company was definitely real and the skills that I’ve obtained from working with a diverse population of staff and patients will be put forth with my new career. I thank you for recognizing early that I would be good for Verbal Deescalation because that one decision set me on the path in life to understand that it isn’t the acting out from a person that you look at but what’s underneath the acting out. All because of that one choice I can balance people’s personalities even better because now I know that the projecting isn’t about you, it might just be something that happen through out that persons day that lead to that said behavior. So with that being said thank you , even tho we’ve parted ways in forever grateful for allowing to be me and continue to grow. In the end I outgrew the company and that’s fine because life is about growth ✊🏼❤️
