MLK National Day of Service
MONDAY, JANUARY 17, 2011 beginning at 8AM
On Monday, January 17, 2011 we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the holiday recognizing one of America's greatest heroes-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. At the Inauguration of President Barack Obama in January 2009, he declared Martin Luther King Jr. Day a national day of service. The President is urging US citizens to join or start a service event every year to honor Dr. King's legacy and the spirit of coming together to make a difference in our communities.
The African American Art & Culture Complex is partnering with Organizing for American and Citizen Hope to host a rally and a one-day volunteer initiative throughout San Francisco. We will start as early as 8 a.m. with breakfast, followed by a rally to motivate and thank volunteers, and to inspire them to volunteer year round. We will then dispatch hundreds of volunteers throughout the City for various volunteer opportunities, including Department of Public Works city clean up and garden repair at AAACC. Other volunteer opportunities include tree-planting, food pantry/kitchen, painting, reading for seniors, and cleaning up our parks.
Our partners include the San Francisco Department of Public Works and Park and Recreation Departments, the Glide Foundation, the National Parks Department, and Mo Magic. Together, we will provide hundreds of volunteer opportunities throughout San Francisco.
Please join us on Monday, January 17, 2011 at 8 a.m.
Address: 762 Fulton Street, San Francisco, CA 94117
