Long Beach families can make the MLK, Jr. holiday a “Day On, Not a Day Off” by participating in one of the many volunteer projects offered in honor of the MLK National Day of Service.
The day starts with a kickoff rally at 8am at Scherer Park in Bixby Knolls, with a free pancake breakfast provided by the Long Beach Firefighters. Volunteers then disperse to participate in work service projects throughout the city of Long Beach.
With its largest number of projects (16) and expected 400+ volunteers, this marks the ninth year Leadership Long Beach and its alumni have collaborated with community partners to rally Long Beach residents to give back on the MLK National Day of Service. This year’s projects provide opportunities for people with a variety of different service skills; most are family-friendly to allow volunteers of all ages to participate
