Life’s most urgent and persistent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’
–Martin Luther King Jr.
January 18, 2016 will mark the 33rd celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Reverend King was not only a champion of civil rights, but a teacher of the timeless values by which he lived his life: courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service.
Meals from the Heartland will be offering packaging opportunities for volunteers all day on January 18, starting at 8:00am. Each shift lasts an hour and a half and can accommodate 60 bodies to package meals for the hungry here in Iowa and around the world. Click HERE to open our scheduling calendar. Simply click on the MLK Day link to be taken to the registration* page. There you will find a listing of the available shift times and the number of people still needed for each shift.
We have all tried to make New Year’s Resolutions only to miss the mark year after year. THIS year, make it easy on yourself! Resolve to donate your time, to give to others, and join us on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to fulfill that goal!
