MLK Day of Service Planned for Monday

Tucker organizations are collaborating in honor of Martin Luther King Day to serve the community.

On Monday, Jan. 21, 2013 representatives from Tucker churches, schools, organizations and businesses will join together for a morning of service in recognition of the “beloved community” ideal proclaimed and embodied in the life of Martin Luther King Jr.  

The idea for this Day of Service came from a group of local ministers meeting at Tucker High School, and other members of the community quickly embraced the opportunity.

The Day of Service will begin at Tucker High School at 9 a.m. with sign in, registration, and words of instruction. Coffee and other breakfast refreshments will be provided. Participants will also have the opportunity to write a card to a Tucker High school faculty member thanking them for their work on behalf of our community.

At 9:45 a.m., participants will move to one of six locations, including Tucker High School, the Tucker Nature Preserve, Brockett Elementary School, Smokerise Elementary School, Tucker Middle School, and Networks Cooperative Ministry. Most projects will conclude between 11:30 and 11:45 although some will continue until later in the day.

Anyone is invited to participate in the MLK Day of Service in Tucker. You may register online here.

Please note that the registration form is a pdf that is filled out and submitted online. Also, children are welcome to participate as long as they have a parent present. High schoolers may be left in the charge of a teacher or organization leader. The Day of Service staff is not responsible for the supervision of children and teens.
