On January 14, the Segerstrom makes giving back a family affair.
Millions come together to volunteer and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who never stopped asking the question, "What are you doing for others?" The MLK Day of Service is a moment to work together to fulfill King's vision for a better America with hands-on projects that directly benefit the local community.
As Dr. King once pointed out, "Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve." This year, the Segerstrom has embraced that idea with service opportunities designed especially for youth with a heart for helping their peers. Families are invited to the new Argryos Plaza, where they can prepare a backpack for a child in the foster system, create an encouraging card for a young community member, and learn how to get involved with Segerstrom Center's outreach to youth in Orange County. Guests can explore ways to help the Segerstrom's partner organization CHOC, opportunities to volunteer at the Center, and more.
Families can also participate in a community art project and enjoy delicious food trucks, face painting, and balloon art.
