15th Anniversary of MLK Service Project Helping Senior Citizens
Project Set for Jan. 14-16, 2017
Decatur’s Martin Luther King Jr. Service Project is celebrating the 15th anniversary of this volunteer repair program to provide free home and yard repair to keep Decatur’s senior citizens’ homes safe, comfortable and dry. Over 1,300 people volunteered last year to provide these much needed repairs at no charge to the senior homeowner. Volunteers weatherize homes to reduce utility costs, construct handicap ramps and add other handicap-accessible features, reconstruct damaged bathrooms, replace rotten wood, paint and beautify yards by trimming bushes and raking leaves during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. The project committee invites your business, neighborhood association, place of worship or civic organization to join in the effort.
The MLK Service Project is supported through grants and private donations, both financial and in-kind. Your gift is tax deductible.
