Celebrate Dr. King’s Life by Serving The Community
On Monday, Jan. 21, join thousands of other Montgomery County students and families in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and teachings by participating in the Montgomery County Volunteer Center’s 2019 MLK Day of Service event at the Bethesda North Marriott and Conference Center, from 1-3 p.m.
Participants will have the opportunity to help with a wide variety of service projects appropriate for volunteers of all ages, and students can earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours. Activities will include everything from packaging food for the hungry and making dog toys for animal shelters to creating scarves for hospice patients and crafting appreciation cards for military troops. In addition, the event will feature a volunteer fair where participants can learn about ways to serve with dozens of local nonprofits and government agencies throughout the year.
This event is free, but space is limited and advance registration is required. Sign up here.
In addition, there will be smaller-scale multi-project service events in Olney, Rockville, Silver Spring, Gaithersburg, and Germantown. Visit the Volunteer Center’s MLK Day web page for details and registration links.
