“Everyone can be great, because anyone can serve,” Martin Luther King Jr. once wrote. The Volunteer Center of United Way encourages individuals and families to pay tribute to Dr. King by giving back and making an impact in our local communities on the MLK Day of Service, Saturday, January 18.

 

“Make it a day on, not a day off,” says Alisa Kesten, executive director of The Volunteer Center. “The wide range of projects we sponsor with regional nonprofits address issues from poverty to homelessness to inequality. This is truly a wonderful opportunity for families to serve together and people of all ages and walks of life to join neighbors and local leaders to help make a difference in their own backyards.”

 

Among the many activities planned for the MLK Day of Service are “I Have a Dream” crafts projects at the Carver Center in Port Chester and the Yonkers Public Library, and a canned food drive at HOPE Community Services in New Rochelle. Corporations are joining in, with Con Edison helping sort and package clothing at Family Services of Westchester’s The Sharing Shelf in Port Chester. Students at Mamaroneck High School will be making shelter welcome bags for survivors of domestic violence at My Sisters’ Place in White Plains.
