A Great Day to Make A Difference
The Arlington Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration reaches its 30th year of “building harmony,” and “celebrating diversity” in our community. After a weekend of celebration filled with noted speakers, special tributes, student scholarships, Step competitions, mixtures of poetry, jazz, and so much more, volunteers come together in a “Day of Service” on Monday to serve throughout their community.
Instead of a day off, our community is encouraged to make it a “day on,” serving others to make a difference across our community. The Mission Arlington®/Mission Metroplex® family is thrilled to be one service partner among many on this day.
Volunteers can join the opening ceremonies for the day, which includes a continental breakfast and t-shirts for the first 300 people to arrive, by arriving at 400 W. South Street at 9 a.m. on Monday morning, January 21st. The Arlington Martin Luther King, Jr. team will sign you in, and get you your assignments and tools for the day. For more information about this weekend, check out the official website here.
Mission Arlington® will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you aren’t able to make it by 9:00, but can come earlier or later, then please come on down to serve. Come by yourself, bring a friend, or come with your team. There is so much that you can do to help others in need throughout this community. Come ready to work hard, and to have the most fun ever.
