MLK Signature Day of Service 2016
“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." The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community." This year’s MLK Day of Service will take place on Monday, January 18th, and HandsOn Broward will lead the charge locally by activating 100 volunteers in service at the Broward Outreach Center’s Pompano Beach campus.
Broward Outreach Center is a division of the Miami Rescue Mission which operates 3 campuses across South Florida – 1 in Miami, 1 in Hollywood, and 1 in Pompano Beach. The Miami Rescue Mission has served the homeless and needy in South Florida since 1922. Combined, the campuses of Miami, Hollywood and Broward provide 756 beds for residential and emergency services.
The site of our focus for MLK Day, the Pompano Beach Campus, was opened in 2002 and has 200 beds for residential programs and 20 emergency beds to serve men, women, and children as well as a special program to engage the chronic homeless. Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to join us and play an active role in enhancing the physical appearance of the campus for the thousands who visit each year. Walls will be painted, murals will be created, and landscaping will be refreshed as we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Make Monday, January 18th “A Day On, Not a Day Off”, and join us as we celebrate MLK Day 2016. Click “Sign Up” below to reserve your slot today.
