Whether you’re creative or just enjoy making things, you’re invited to join in helping with a “King Day of Service” project from 10 a.m. – noon on Monday, January 20, 2014, which is Martin Luther King, Jr., Day.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
To answer that question, each year, community-minded citizens come together to serve their neighbors and communities through a national initiative, the King Day of Service. In O’Fallon, volunteers of all ages are invited to register in advance for a community service project: making tissue paper flowers and decorating cards. The cards and flowers will be delivered to residents at local care facilities on Random Acts of Kindness Day, February 14.
“We chose this project because it’s suitable for all ages and groups, it’s fun to do, and it’s a great way to contribute,” said Alexis Jaegers, O’Fallon’s Volunteer Services Coordinator. “With many government offices, banks and schools closed in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, it’s the perfect opportunity to join in doing something that will be greatly appreciated.”
