A Day of Service!

A Day of Service!

Martin Luther King Jr. is an inspirational force for Civil Rights. Every year, on the third Monday of January, we take a day to follow his lead and create positive change in the communities we live in. Celebrated as a day of service rather than a day of rest, people all over the country take this as an opportunity to volunteer.

This year, January 20, 2020, David & Margaret hosted a Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day. Employees from Inland Empire United Way and students from the University of La Verne graciously spent the morning working on various projects to support youth with a history of foster care!

MLK Service Days are a way to acknowledge, remember, and thank Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for his passion for social justice, for Black Americans and oppressed people around the world, and to recognize there is much work still to be done.

David & Margaret hosts a variety of Service Days throughout the year. If you are interested in volunteering, events can be viewed here. Volunteer orientations are held monthly during a Facebook Live event.
