MLK Day of Service 2022

MLK Day Goes Virtual

Leadership Long Beach is proud to continue our legacy of service by pivoting to provide virtual service opportunities on January 17, 2022, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the National Day of Service

Leadership Long Beach MLK Day of Service#MLK Day #LLBserves

For the 12th year in a row, Leadership Long Beach and our partners have brought together our alumni and community volunteers from across Long Beach to serve together in honor of the National Day of Service and in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Over the years thousands of volunteers have completed dozens of community service projects, growing the Long Beach MLK Day of Service into the largest MLK service day in LA County.

And while the current environment and our commitment to supporting the health of our city have dictated that we postpone our Community Kickoff Celebration and all of our scheduled in-person service projects, we are thrilled that we are able to offer two virtual service projects that will help meet urgent community needs and keep alive the spirit of the day. Read below for details and to SIGN-UP for our ‘Silver Letters Campaign’ and ‘Community Cares Packages’ projects.

And as always, are all welcome to join in and serve! Please share this opportunity with family, friends, and community groups to join us in “Making it a Day On, Not a Day Off’ for Long Beach.
