Join Us for Volunteer Service Projects on MLK Day
Help us make our community stronger by participating in fun, family-friendly service projects for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service on Monday, January 21.
As part of the Y's focus on social responsibility, the events encourage all ages to give back in the spirit of Dr. King and make it a day “on,” rather a day “off” from work or school.
