The MLK Day of Service Advisory Board in collaboration with St. Petersburg College has awarded funds to local organizations to host service projects scheduled in connection with the Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday on January 15, 2018. These projects will involve 56 nonprofits, organizations and public agencies selected as part of the MLK Day of Service Advisory Board’s annual effort to transform the holiday into “A Day On, Not a Day Off.”
These projects include youth education programs, delivering meals to the needy, refurbishing homes and community gardens, collecting food and clothing, signing up mentors, health education, promoting nonviolence, and more. The MLK day of Service shines a spotlight on service as a powerful force to unite our community. The MLK Day of Service provides each of us with an opportunity to join neighbors and local leaders to tackle community challenges and strengthen our communities.
