Martin Luther King Day of Service

Martin Luther King Day of ServiceCelebrate Martin Luther King Day by giving back.

Monday, January 16th is the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service. And there are so many opportunities to volunteer to do community service to honor his spirit. Gatherings include park and street cleanups, beautification projects, and selecting books for prisoners. And, these gatherings take place all over Oakland and the Bay area including Lake Merritt, Shepards Canyon Park, Peralta Creek Park, Lake Meritt, and the Morcom Rose Garden.

Two great resources for learning more about specific events are the United We Serve and the  All For Good websites. They both have a list of projects with all the details.

“The time is always right to do what is right.”
