Volunteers Take Part in MLK, Jr. Day of Service

During the MLK, Jr. Day of Service at Dominican College some volunteers made birthday bags with cake mix, icing, candles, a birthday banner, birthday cards, and gifts for needy children.

Community members from throughout Rockland County volunteered at a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service event sponsored by Volunteer New York at Dominican College on Saturday, January, 19, 2019.

Nicole Lowrance of Volunteer New York said the Day of Service is a wonderful way for families to honor the legacy of Dr. King.  “There’s not a better way to honor him than coming together, being of service to others, and making goods that are going to non-profit partners in this community and Westchester as well.”

Volunteers worked on a number of projects during the Day of Service held in the Granito Center including birthday bags for children at the Nyack Center, gifts for the troops and veterans, and dog pull toys for sheltered dogs. Volunteers also had the opportunity to learn CPR.
