Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service Clean-Up
Please join the Enrichmond Foundation at Historic East End and Evergreen Cemeteries for Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
Historic East End and Evergreen Cemeteries are historic African-American cemeteries. Evergreen, created in 1891 and East End Cemetery establish in 1897, are both located in Richmond's East End. They are the resting place for many of Richmond’s African-American leaders of the 19th and 20th centuries, including Maggie L. Walker, John Mitchell, Jr., and Rev. J. Andrew Bowler, Rosa D. Bowser, Hezekiah F. Jonathan, William Custalo, and Dr. Richard F. Tancil.
Volunteer tasks include clearing overgrowth and debris from pathways and grave markers and grave marker recording.
Due to the delicate nature of the headstones, use of heavy equipment is very limited and clean up by hand is necessary to preserve this part of our region’s history. All tools will be provided.
Volunteers please dress for very cold weather. Wear layers! Wear long pants, closed toe shoes, and bring gardening gloves.
All volunteers will park at the Dabbs House Museum, 3812 Nine Mile Rd, Richmond, VA 23223 and shuttle to the cemetery. If you arrive at the cemetery in your vehicle, you will be redirected to the Dabbs House Museum to park. -- Carpooling is strongly encouraged,.
Volunteers must sign in and sign a waiver liability form.
Your volunteer time is crucial to the success of this project as we reclaim and maintain the cemetery. Thank you for regestering!
