Event Details

Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service with

the Watershed Project!

Richmond Greenway Bioswale
Monday January 20, 2014, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm


 

In 1994 Congress designated Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a national day of volunteer service.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. sought to forge the common ground on which people from all walks of life could join together to address important community issues. The King Day of Service brings together people who might not ordinarily meet, breaks down barriers that have divided us in the past, leads to better understanding and ongoing relationships.

On January 20, 2014, Americans across the country will once again honor his legacy by taking part in a wide range of service projects.

Come out with your family, friends, and neighbors and join us in making a difference in Richmond. Be a part of this festive and inspirational event!
