Sioux Falls Senior Organizations to Sponsor MLK Day of Service
Nearly a dozen nonprofits will be the beneficiaries of an afternoon of celebration and service on Monday January 16 - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Each third Monday in January, the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a day of service - "a day on, not a day off.”
During his lifetime, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. recognized the power of service, famously saying,
“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.”
Locally, a variety of hands-on service projects will be available that day at Sunnycrest Retirement Village (3900 S. Terry Ave) between 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM.
This event is open to the public and no reservations are required; simply show up and lend a hand. A special invitation is extended to seniors and retired persons, however.
For more information contact Kristin Fox, Director of Senior Companions of South Dakota at (605) 361-1133, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
