Martin Luther King, Jr. Virtual Day of Service 2022

“Life’s Most Persistent and Urgent Question is: What are YOU Doing for Others?” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off." This year, MLK Day will take place on Monday, January 17th. While we can’t come together in the hundreds in person this year, you can still join HandsOn Broward and HandsOn Miami in our Virtual MLK Day of Service so we can honor Dr. King’s life and legacy by completing service projects that will benefit local nonprofit agencies.
Each virtual volunteer opportunity will be focused on one impact area. All opportunities will be held via Zoom. Volunteers can access supply list & detailed instructions by following the links below. Volunteers are responsible for purchasing supplies. Zoom links will be sent the day before the project.

Children will be able to follow along with our storytime reading, afterwards together with their parents and guidance from HandsOn Broward, children will learn how to create a Superhero Cape!
