For twelve years we’ve been building Dr. King’s ‘Beloved Community’ right here in our own backyard.
Each year, we come together, inspired by the mission of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to strengthen our community one volunteer project at a time. Our mission at United Way is to invest in our region's kids by giving them and their families the resources they need to thrive. From access to books to food on the table, when important resources are provided, children can succeed and in turn build a better future for themselves and their community.
This January, honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by joining us for the 12th Annual MLK Weekend of Service Beginning January 18, 2019, volunteer opportunities will be available throughout our community in celebration of MLK Day. Sign up for a project below - opportunities include:
- Sorting donated children’s books: Help kids prepare for kindergarten by cleaning and organizing gently used books delivered to their home.
- Transforming community spaces in need of TLC: Help kids have vibrant, safe places to play and discover by painting, cleaning and sprucing up neighborhood spaces.
- Stocking food banks: Help families meet their basic needs by packaging boxes of food and essential items.
By volunteering your time, you're adding hundreds of thousands of dollars of value back into your community. Take a look at what our volunteers had to say from last year's MLK Weekend of Service:
