Volunteer on MLK Day at the Y
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 17.
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.
