New Rochelle Selected as one of Three Community Hubs for Volunteer NY!’s 2019 MLK Day of Service

On Saturday, January 19, 2019 Volunteer New York! will host its 9th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. Each year this community-wide action day brings together hundreds of local volunteers to serve as part of the National MLK Day of Service, which began in 1994 in honor of Dr. King’s legacy and passion for serving others.

New Rochelle was chosen as one of three community hubs where Volunteer New York!’s 2019 MLK Day of Service will take place. “New Rochelle is a vibrant city with a history of service and volunteerism,” said Alisa H. Kesten, Volunteer New York! Executive Director. “We’re excited to be able to make it even easier for local residents to take action in New Rochelle on MLK Day.” Additional hubs include Elmsford, NY and Rockland County.

In New Rochelle there are three MLK Day volunteer shifts offered, which begin at 10:00a.m., 12:30p.m. and 5:00p.m. Each two hour shift has three service projects available as well, which each address different local causes or needs. To encourage families to volunteer together almost all projects offered on MLK Day allow for youths to serve alongside a parent or guardian. Please see opportunity details for exact age requirements.

To take part in the 2019 MLK Day of Service, please register online at www.volunteernewyork.org/MLK or by calling 914-948-4452 for more information.
