MLK Family Day of Service
January 2021

MLK Day is usually a time when we come together as a community to volunteer and give back. This year, due to COVID restrictions, things are looking a little different. Start a new tradition in 2021 with a Family Day of Service.

Reach out to us to customize Take Home Service Projects for your family. This is a great opportunity to teach your children about food insecurity, homelessness or issues in the elderly community. We are happy to customize a project to fit your family's needs.
