MLK Day of Service Volunteer Project
Young Leaders Society at Next Move
Ten volunteers with United Way’s Young Leaders Society made a big impact this week in honor of MLK Day of Service. Young Leaders Society (YLS) volunteers helped Next Move Sacramento reorganize and clean their community donation center, readying it for the New Year. Next Move’s community donation center allows clients to obtain necessary items they need when transitioning from being homeless into new housing. YLS volunteers organized donated items, cleaned the donation center from top to bottom, and created a “Kid’s Corner” at the center.
Each year, MLK Day of Service is nationally recognized as a “day on,” not a day off, as millions of volunteers honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy through community service. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals and strengthens communities to move closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “beloved community.” As Sacramento’s young professional group focused on philanthropy and service, it was important for YLS to host a volunteer project on this day.
