Martin Luther King Jr Service Project

Don’t miss this opportunity to be in service to our seniors!

Volunteer for the 17th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Service Project held the weekend of January 19-21, 2019.

In 2003, the Decatur Preservation Alliance Board identified a need to alleviate the economic pressures on our community’s elderly and thereby enable at-risk seniors to remain in their homes safely and comfortably, improving their quality of life. To achieve these goals, the MLK, Jr. Service Project was started to provide house maintenance and repair, free of charge, to Decatur senior citizen homeowners during the MLK, Jr. holiday weekend. That first year’s project commenced with 100 volunteers and eight homes.

 

Decatur’s MLK, Jr. Service Project honors the legacy of Dr. King, who worked tirelessly toward a dream of equality, freedom and justice. He encouraged us all to live up to the purpose and potential of America by applying the principles of nonviolence to make this country a better place in which to live, creating what he called a “Beloved Community.” Transforming these principles into community action, Decatur’s MLK, Jr. Service Project brings people of all ages and backgrounds together, working toward that goal of “Beloved Community.”

 

Volunteers work at senior citizens’ homes in Oakhurst, making greatly needed repairs and doing yard work that elderly homeowners have been unable to afford.

Volunteers may sign up for one or more of the following shifts:

  • Saturday, January 19: 9am to 1pm and 1pm to 5pm
  • Sunday, January 20: 1pm to 5pm
  • Monday, January 21: 9am to 1pm and 1pm to 5pm

All volunteers are invited to attend a celebration cookout on Monday, Jan. 21, at 5 pm at the Solarium.
