Central High School hosting 2018 MLK day of service in January
11/29/2017, 9:47 a.m.
Residents of all ages and backgrounds are invited to advance the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the 2018 MLK Day of Service on January 15. Join hundreds of volunteers in making it a “day on, not a day off” by completing service projects throughout the community.
The event kicks off in the Joliet Central High School Student Center, 201 E. Jefferson Street, with volunteer registration at 7:30 a.m., followed by the program launch and breakfast. Participants then depart to complete service projects from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., before ending the day back at Central for lunch and a project re-cap.
To make the event a success, local Joliet-area service projects are needed. Non-profit organizations are invited to submit their (3) hour project requests to the United Way of Will County via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than January 10, 2018.
To volunteer, please register by contacting Ericka Williams at email@example.com or call (815) 724-1142. Participants will complete a variety of projects such as painting, beautifying schools, serving meals, and more.
This year’s service goal is 1,000 volunteers, 50 projects & 4,000 hours of service.
