Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

A day of community service to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

City Year Cleveland will again be celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with a day ON for service.

Bringing together AmeriCorps members and community volunteers, we’ll work on school beautification projects (murals, painting, organizing closets), as well as with area non-profits on projects to benefit community youth–including children in foster care.

If you have questions or want to register a group larger than 10, please call/email Nikki Schnupp, Development Manager: / 216-373-3426

Thank you! We at City Year love getting to spend the day working alongside our community partners.

Students, kindergarten through college, are invited to participate in our first photo exhibit: What Does Service Mean to You?  For more info and to enter, click here:

Combs, hairbrushes, and shampoo

Dental care–toothpaste, brushes, floss
