Hundreds of Volunteers Turned Out to Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s Legacy with a Community Day of Service
An infectious spirit of giving filled the Winnetka Community House on Monday, January 15 as hundreds of families, friends, scout troops, community groups and individuals of all ages gathered to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s enduring message of tolerance, diversity and service. A variety of fun service projects benefiting a dozen local nonprofits and the people they serve were offered, and volunteers produced carloads of blankets, scarves, cards and other gifts for people in need throughout Chicago. An Open Mic forum also offered community members an opportunity to share their thoughtful reflections on the relevance of the message and legacy of Dr. King today. This is always a terrific community activity, and we are grateful for the support and generosity of everyone who came. Read more info about the program and 2017 photos.
