#MLKDay Weekend of Service

Visit the 2016 MLK Weekend of Service.

January 19, 2015: Make it a Day On, Not A Day Off. 

Are you volunteering this weekend?  Below are some resources to help you engage your families, friends, colleagues, teams, faith/non-faith communities, and other networks in volunteerism this weekend.

Needs Drive for the Coalition for the Homeless – The central Florida Coalition is in need of men’s flip flops and other items.  They also have an immediate needs list posted with other items.  Consider hosting a drive this weekend in your neighborhoods or other groups.  Delivery information is on the list, or you can contact BEOrlando@live.com and we will arrange pickup and delivery on Monday for you.

Sunday Suppers  –  Consider hosting a secular Sunday Supper. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of people of diverse backgrounds interacting on personal levels, America’s Sunday Supper encourages people to share a meal and discuss issues that affect their communities, to increase racial and cultural understanding and, to promote unity.  You can find toolkits and ideas at the Points Of Light Foundation and register your Sunday Supper HERE.

#MeetupMonday – Similar to the Sunday Supper initiative, #MeetupMonday gives you a chance to discuss what’s happening—in our neighborhoods and all across the US—so we can come together and build a stronger community.  Invite neighbors or coworkers you want to know better, friends, and anyone who wants to bring their own perspective to the conversation.  Visit http://www.meetup.com/Orlando-FL-MeetupMonday/ to learn more.

Here are some things going on around central Florida:
