MLK Day of Interfaith Service
Monday, January 20, 2014 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
On this day, 100 students from Steps to Success in Brookline and other area youth programs will join college students and community volunteers for a day of mentoring and college awareness activities. In the afternoon, the youth, their mentors and other community volunteers will engage together in a large-scale service project, where we will assemble OVER 10,000 meals to be distributed to those in need throughout the Greater Boston area!
At 3 PM, the youth will head home and the mentors and other volunteers will remain for an engaging discussion about MLK's legacy and teachings about service, civic engagement, privilege and justice.
There are a number of ways you can be involved:
- as a one-to-one mentor for the day,
- to help with set-up and facilitation of the meal assembly lines,
- to guide the campus tours (the "March on Brandeis," as we are calling it), or
- to ride one of the buses with the Scholars, who will be coming from Boston and Lawrence.
This project has been made possible by a generous grant from the Massachusetts Service Alliance. Through that grant, we will be able to cover the cost to assemble 10,000 nutritious meals. We are hoping to do much more, though! At only 25 cents per meal, any donation you can make will go far in feeding more people!
A donation is ABSOLUTELY NOT REQUIRED to register (If you are not making a donation, just put "0" in the amount box).
