In recognition of MLK Day on January 16th, I joined thousands of other volunteers in a day of service commemorating the incredible legacy of Dr.Martin Luther King Jr – a man whose unwavering dedication for social justice changed the world.
When I found out that I didn’t have to work on MLK Day, I figured this was as good a time as any to give back to the wider community that has been my home for the past year and a half. I joined Cheryl’s team – Friends Making A Difference – with Hands On Greater DC Cares and we were assigned to the Harry Thomas Sr Recreational Center for a morning of painting.
P.S. If you’re in the DC area, go visit the MLK National Memorial. All reports have been great. I’ve only walked past it, but one of these sunny days I’ll go spend some time there – new post maybe?
Here are a few pictures from our Day of Service!
