Celebrate MLK Day with a Day of Service

On Monday, January 17, L.A. Works hosts its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. This year, volunteers will beautify and improve Rosemont Avenue Elementary School in Historic Filipinotown by converting an unused area of the library into a reading nook, landscaping to create a literacy garden, and designing a new game room specifically for children to interact with one another. The volunteer project will also include creating murals, painting school buildings, and planting flowers and shrubs.

In 2011, L.A. Works will kick off its 20th year of connecting volunteers with volunteer opportunities. The organization manages more than 80 volunteer events each month and has contributed more than 1 million hours of service to Los Angeles.
