Martin Musical Montage

Honoring what would have been the 82nd birthday of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. For the past quarter century, in this country, people have been encouraged to make it a ‘day on’, rather than a ‘day off’ as they take up the reins that were dropped when shots rang out and took the life of a man who stands as an example of what can be accomplished when faith meets action.

Service projects cross country range from offering emotional/spiritual/physical nourishment in a soup kitchen or shelter, picking up hammer and nails with Habitat For Humanity, cleaning up a vacant lot, visiting people in nursing homes or who are shut in at home, becoming a reading mentor, Big Brother or Big Sister, picking up groceries for an elderly or ill neighbor…the list and the needs are endless.
