This is the 10th consecutive year the nonprofit is organizing the widespread event, which will take volunteers all over the city to work on projects like painting murals, cleaning sidewalks and landscaping.
“Martin Luther King worked to make this country a better place to live,” said Dr. Sean McMillan, pastor at St. Mark’s Church. “Today we will help make Long Beach a more beautiful city.”
On Monday, Jan. 21, those hoping to make Martin Luther King Jr.’s National Day of Service a “Day On, not a Day Off” can choose over a dozen projects to volunteer at in Long Beach.
Community members rolled up their sleeves today to participate in multiple projects taking place throughout the city to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
