Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is our annual day of observance where volunteers serve at one of our activation sites for a huge impact on our region. This Day of Service is a way to transform Dr. King's life and teachings into community service that helps solve problems. On this day, Americans of every age and background celebrate Dr. King through volunteering and unite to strengthen communities, empower individuals, and bridge barriers.
Sign up for a slot on one of many projects occurring in our region and make this a day on, not a day off for you and your family. Projects will take place on the grounds of Virginia State University and in the surrounding community that will aid nonprofit agencies, county public spaces, and schools in the area. Projects include painting murals, building public infrastructure (park benches, picnic tables, and/or outdoor classroom desks) to install at public spaces in South Chesterfield, creating kits to help affected neighbors and many other projects that meet a variety of critical needs throughout South Chesterfield.
When you are volunteering, please follow these tips for healthy volunteering. HandsOn Greater Richmond emphasizes the importance of wearing a mask, social distancing, and not volunteering if you don't feel well.
