2 MLK Day of Service Events
January 21, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 5:30 pm at
We are hosting our first community-wide MLK Day of Service Event on Monday, January 21, 2019. We’re inviting local businesses, community-based and service organizations, schools, and individuals to support the MLK Day of Service to assemble weekend snack packs for local children in need.
Legislation signed in 1983 marked the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a federal holiday. In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort. Each year, on the third Monday in January, MLK Day of Service is observed as a “day on, not a day off.” MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved Community.”

Did you know…
Many children who receive free or reduced-price school meals are left without adequate nutrition on weekends. CFA’s Weekend Snack Pack Program helps fill the gap. Last year, 35,000 snack packs were distributed to local children in need at 15 local schools.
