MLK Day of Service January 17, 2010

What’s your service project for tomorrow?

As we commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr, my family members have a couple projects scheduled to help build community.  My kids go to school on MLK Day, the student body all participate in day of service activities.

My youngest is packing boxes for troops and for residents of Windsor Place, and assisted living community. I’m scouring the house for shoe boxes to send along tomorrow.

My oldest is gathering and sorting donated books to for a book sale which will raise funds for college scholarships.

My husband is making cookie dough for the 1st grade. They are having a bake sale, with funds used to purchase animals from Heifer International.

I am making casseroles for Emmanuel Dining Room in Wilmington De.

A friend is in the midst of deciding about a trip to Haiti. A brave journey, to be sure. That trip would likely break my heart. As he hears about Day of Service activities around the country, I’m sure that decision will be on his mind.

Leave me a note and let me know what you’re doing, and how you found the activity. I’m always interested to hear how projects show up in front of the right minds. Enjoy your day way from your concerns;  thanks for taking up the cause of someone else.
