Event description

Description

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 15, 2018, Americans across the country will once again honor his legacy by taking part in a wide range of service projects.

Come join The Watershed Project and the East Bay Regional Park District along the Richmond Shoreline for Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors to enjoy the park and have fun together improving Point Pinole Regional Shoreline.
