There are many ways to celebrate MLK Day and one of the best is giving back to our city and the larger community.
Today, Jan. 16 – recognized as the Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service – we can celebrate Dr. King and do service in our neighborhoods.
The MLK weekend was declared by President Obama as a weekend of Days of Service and giving back to our communities. You can join volunteers from the Boys and Girls Club, Oakland Fire Dept., Mayor Jean Quan’s Office, BBBON, Allen Temple, the East Oakland Boxing Association, the East Bay Dragons, OCO and the city of Oakland. Anyone can come and participate.
