“Everybody Can Be Great, Because Anybody Can Serve” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Join hundreds of your neighbors for a community-wide day of "tikkun olam"
("repair of the world") as part of a National Day of Service to honor the life
and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This inter-generational event will
feature a range of hands-on service projects; participants will work in small
groups on projects addressing issues of poverty, hunger, housing and
homelessness, aging, the environment and more.
Come on your own or with your family and friends! We ask that any volunteers
under the age of 15 be accompanied by a parent.
We look forward to working with you
to promote Dr. King's legacy of tolerance, peace and equality and increase our
community's commitment to service and justice. This fun and inspirational day
will leave you feeling accomplished and energized!
“A community is too heavy for anyone to carry alone.” ~ Based on Deuteronomy 1:9
