(BOSTON)—Over 300 members of the Jewish community will be volunteering at 11 service sites across Greater Boston at JCRC's 4th Annual MLK Day of Service on January 21st, 2019. MLK Day of Service has become a staple of JCRC’s volunteer programming and a day for families and individuals from the Jewish community to come together to honor the legacy of Dr. King.
Volunteers will be preparing meals at soup kitchens, repairing houses, revitalizing a church and a school, sorting through clothing donations, and more. One group of volunteers will be writing letters to Congress with residents of Hebrew SeniorLife in an effort to keep Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation alive for individuals from Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti, and El Salvador.
Please visit www.jcrcboston.org/MLK for a full schedule of volunteer sites and times.
Photos are permitted at the following sites: Hebrew SeniorLife, 2Life’s Golda Meir House, Waltham Haitian Church of the Nazarene, Temple Beth Am Framingham, Temple Israel Sharon, Blackstone Elementary School, and Cradles to Crayons.
