MLK Day of Service
Registration for this event is full. Stay tuned for future volunteer projects!
The Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday is a National Day of Service and a time to re-commit ourselves to serving each other and our communities. Americans across the country will honor Dr. King by helping their neighbors and communities. This Day of Service is a way to remember Dr. King’s legacy and transform his life and teachings into community service.
We are looking for 20 volunteers to help put together literacy kits that will be distributed to Pre-K centers and Kindergarten Title I students. A Literacy Kit is comprised of a book and collection of related objects, worksheets, games or other activities designed to make reading interactive and enjoyable for young children. Contents of the Literacy Kit can help bring books to life and deepen the reading experience for the child. Literacy Kits can give teachers, child care workers and volunteer readers ready-to-use tools to support the development of a child’s language and literacy skills, as well as their creative thinking. Please dress comfortably. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
Directions to the Literacy Coalition: Take I-95 to Gateway Blvd. and go west. Make a left on Quantum Blvd. The Literacy Coalition is on the left.
