When: Mon., Jan. 20, 10 a.m. 2014
This year, pledge to do more than lounge around the house all day on Jan. 20, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. There’s plenty to do, including the annual Unity March, starting at the Convention Center at 10 am. Afterward, choose to help out at one of six service sites, including the MLK Family Outreach Center, House of Charity and St. Margaret’s Shelter. Volunteers will work from 1-3 pm, but make sure to register online prior (tiny.cc/MLKDay2014) so organizers know how many volunteers to expect. Many other events are planned leading up to Monday, including a Youth Empowerment Luncheon (Jan. 18) at Shadle Park HS, a Commemorative Celebration (Jan. 19) at Holy Temple Church of God in Christ, and the Community Resource Fair, on Monday from 11 am-2 pm, in River Park Square.
