K-5 MLK Day of Service
PALCS Elementary: January 18th, 2016
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
On Monday, January 18, 2016, the United States will recognize the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. To honor Dr. King’s legacy, the entire PALCS community will have the opportunity to participate in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service by working together to address a variety of needs.
In the spirit of Dr. King and fresh beginnings for the new year, consider continuing the service or volunteering you provide for the MLK Day of Service so that it becomes a weekly or monthly event. Your positive contribution towards your community is invaluable and can provide benefits for both you and the organization you choose to help.
There is usually a need for volunteers in every facet of your neighborhood, so you have many options to choose from to help make a difference. You could serve in a way you know you enjoy, or this can also be a great opportunity to try something new!
