2018 MLK Day of Service

#LBSERVES   #MLKDAY

 

Join us in Long Beach on the MLK, Jr. holiday, Monday, January 15, to make it a “Day On, not a Day Off” as Leadership Long Beach, the Port of Long Beach, the Office of Mayor Robert Garcia, the Office of Vice Mayor Rex Richardson and many community and city organizations collaborate in honor of the MLK National Day of Service. There will be service projects throughout Long Beach allowing residents to join the celebration and volunteer in honor of the MLK, Jr. holiday and the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

All are welcome to join the celebration.  Volunteers should dress appropriately for their selected project, bring their own reusable water bottle and prepare themselves for mostly outdoor, physical activities.  Each site will supply most tools and materials needed for the service activity.  Please note some projects have age requirements and volunteer capacities.
