Be a part of this great community experience!
This year’s event is January 14, 15, and 16, 2017. Come out and help our seniors remain in their homes safely and comfortably, improving their quality of life.
Decatur’s MLK, Jr. Service Project honors the legacy of Dr. King, who worked tirelessly toward a dream of equality, freedom and justice. Please donate today to help those in need.
Dine at participating great Decatur restaurants (Date TBD). A percentage of the day’s proceeds goes to the Decatur MLK Service Project, a large scale volunteer initiative to help low income Decatur seniors live safely, comfortably and affordably in their homes by: Completing needed repairs, Weatherization, Adding handicap accessible features and Yard Work.
Begun in 2003, Decatur’s MLK Jr. Service Project provides free house maintenance and repair for Decatur’s needy senior homeowners each January. In January 2016, approximately 1,300 volunteers contributed over 10,000 hours of time helping 41 senior households during the 3-day weekend project. Thank you for helping these seniors to live more safely, comfortably and affordably in their homes as a result of these much needed repairs and yard work. We look forward to your joining us during the next Decatur Martin Luther King Jr. Service project, which will take place January 14, 15, and 16, 2017.
