MLK Day of Service

MLK Day of Service projects – PADS, books for Africa and much more

Every Sunday night, October through April, PADS volunteer Margaret Epperson provides shelter to 30 homeless men in the basement of Flossmoor Community Church. On Flossmoor’s MLK Day of Service on Jan. 21, the church basement was filled with familiar faces.
 
This year’s Day of Service included a dozen projects in Flossmoor and nearby communities. Hundreds of volunteers flocked to service sites despite the cold and snow.

A Day On: Flossmoor prepares for Day of Service in honor of Dr. King

On Jan. 21, while students and workers across the nation celebrate a day off, The Village of Flossmoor has committed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to service, not rest. 
 

MLK Day of Service Jan. 21 has more ways to help communities

With additional sponsors and events, Flossmoor’s nationally recognized MLK Day of Service returns for a fifth year on Jan. 21 and will provide even more opportunities for local volunteers to give back to the community.

Win-win for businesses that offer ‘Day of Service’

On Monday, Jan. 15, Flossmoor residents have a unique opportunity to be part of a community-wide volunteer experience through the fourth annual MLK Day of Service.
 

Volunteers still needed for some MLK Day of Service projects

Nearly 500 volunteers are taking part in more than a dozen projects during the Jan. 16 MLK Day of Service in Flossmoor, Homewood and other area communities.

Volunteers are still needed for some projects, including the annual PADS program at Flossmoor Community Church, book collection and sorting at Homewood Public Library, painting the office spaces at Respond Now in Chicago Heights and helping restore the habitat at Dan Ryan Woods in Chicago.

Flossmoor’s MLK Day of Service offers opportunities to help those in need

A mid-January day honoring America’s foremost civil rights figure should be an opportunity to give back to the community. That’s the idea behind Flossmoor’s second MLK Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 18. Throughout the day, volunteers will provide services to the homeless, collect donations for the needy, reach out to seniors and take part in other community-based activities.

Flossmoor shows giving spirit during MLK Day of Service

Flossmoor residents spent time Monday in service to others — collecting food, making greeting cards, helping the homeless and working with the area's needy — as they marked the village's first Martin Luther King Day of Service.
