Service Projects

Service projects are the heart of the MLK Day of Service. Volunteer attendees will be packing snack packs and first aid kits as well as making no-sew blankets for those in need. We will also be creating Valentine's Day cards for seniors.
*Arrive early for best selection of service projects!*

Nonprofit / Mentor Fair

We hope the Day of Service inspires our attendees to want to serve in their community year-round. Our nonprofit / mentor fair is an opportunity for all of our volunteers to learn about the many organizations in our community and find one that inspires their passion.

Children's Area

We have a special area just for the kids! We will have a craft for them to create and take home. The Imagination Library will be there and families can sign up for free books to be mailed to their home every month! 

Food Drive

We encourage all of our attendees to bring one or more items of food to donate to the food drive. Donations will be given to local food pantries in the area.

Community Art Project

At the Day of Service, as a community, we will work on a collaborative art project that will then be displayed in the community.

On-location Projects

This year, we are hoping to expand our MLK event to a whole week and allow for more service opportunities. These service projects will take place Saturday Jan 14 to Saturday Jan 21. To view the service opportunities, click the button below.
