When & Where
Many Helping Hands 365
Many Helping Hands 365 is a group of Cambridge residents and volunteers coming together to help fellow residents in need. We formed in late 2010 to host the 1st annual MLK Day of Service event in Cambridge in 2011. In 2016, at the 6th Annual Cambridge MLK Day of Service more than 2,500 people came to spend the afternoon volunteering to helping thousands in need in our community.
In addition to providing an opportunity for people of all ages to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King through personal volunteerism to help those in need in our community, our aim is to raise public awareness of the year-round volunteer needs in our community through our website, www.manyhelpinghands365.org and distribution of a booklet, Guide to Volunteering in Cambridge.
