How will you celebrate Martin Luther King Day on Monday, January 21? President Obama encouraged us to use this holiday as Volunteer Day-a perfect tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. and his message. Let’s keep that tradition alive. Here are some doable volunteer ideas:
- Get the family together and head for a beach or street that needs a litter cleanup.
- Drop by Fishline or Helpline with bags of fresh vegetables which are in short supply during the winter months.
- Get in touch with Island Volunteer Caregivers (IVC), 206-842-4441 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can help Islanders in need with transportation, your company, or small chores.
Also, consider attending the 1st Annual Bainbridge Martin Luther King Celebration
