Family Volunteer Opportunity: Serve Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Dinner!
posted by: Amber Johnson
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said,
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?”
Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday has been marked as a day to turn community concerns into citizen action. Join Volunteers of America in helping prepare for their 27th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Dinner! This dinner feeds 1,700 homeless men, women and children.
When: Saturday, January 14, 2011; 10 a.m. – noon
Where: Volunteers of America’s Sunset Park Senior Center, 1865 Larimer Street, Denver, CO 80202
Who: You and your family…children of all ages are welcome!
What: Preparing for Volunteers of America’s 27th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Dinner. Age-appropriate activities will include decorating placemats, assembling silverware sets, preparing hygiene kits and sorting gently used donated clothing from ARC Thrift Stores.
