The Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service (volunteernewyork.org/MLK) brings together hundreds of volunteers in Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam for service projects that strengthen communities, empower individuals, bridge barriers, and create solutions. Together with United Way of Westchester and Putnam we hope you will make this a day ON, not a day off.
Serve for a Cause: This year there are a number of projects that volunteers can do from home, as well as in their community, which will have an impact on hunger & homelessness, youth education, and family services, amongst others. Many projects are family-friendly and embody the message of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., like the Share the Dream Collage project that focuses on educating youth through a fun and collaborative hands-on activity. Or the Share the Dream Cake project that can be done from home, and encourages anyone to bake a cake with a message of hope on it and donate it to a local community organization, like a homeless shelter or police department.
Our #MLKDay 2015 volunteer opportunities will take place Saturday & Sunday, January 17-18th, 2015.
There are many ways to serve, and many people who will be positively affected by your service. For more information please contact: [email protected] or call 914-948-4452. Commit to a day of service, inspired by a message of hope and equality, and make your plans now. Start the new year with positive community action.
