MLK Day of Service 2019


Our 2019 Day of Service has been rescheduled until Monday Jan 28th!

(As luck would have it, it's a scheduled day off for DES students!)

 We hope you can still join us!


Thank You for Volunteering for our 3rd Annual MLK Day of Service!

Your PTA's Community Service Committee is looking forward to another successful MLK Day of Service! We are so happy that you plan to join us in an engaging & worthy day for all! This is a wonderful opportunity for Explorers and their families to come together and lend a hand to make a real difference in our community & the lives of many of our neighbors. We will be hosting representatives from 3 local organizations who lead the fight against hunger (AFAC), homelessness (A-SPAN) & inter-generational poverty (Borromeo House) in Arlington.

Last year we sent 11 huge boxes to A-SPAN and filled a 20 foot U-Haul Truck with the donations for Borromeo House! Lets make this year another year to remember! You can help by bringing your donations to the Dining Commons on Monday January 28th, by collecting donations from your neighbors, or encouraging them to join us that day!

In addition to the donations we are seeking we also need help to sort them, box them and load them up for delivery to the amazing people who help run these organizations. If you joined us last year, you may recall, we had an enormous turnout! Anticipating an equally awesome turnout this year, we are looking for volunteers to help make sure our day runs smoothly! We truly appreciate anyone who is willing to sign on to help keep our sorting & boxing organized & to help direct questions to the appropriate helpers! 

Thanks again for your donations & your time! 

Yours Truly, Daphne Schultz & Lisa Harper Chang
