    2019 MLK Day of Service

    Residents of all ages and backgrounds are invited to advance the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the 2019 MLK Day of Service on January 21.  Join hundreds of volunteers in making it a “day on, not a day off” by completing service projects throughout the community.

    The event kicks off in the Joliet Central High School Student Center, 201 E. Jefferson Street, with volunteer registration at 7:30 a.m., followed by the program launch and breakfast. Participants then depart to complete service projects from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., before ending the day back at Central for lunch and a project re-cap. 

    Volunteer
    To volunteer, register by completing the Volunteer Sign Up Form and email to ewilliams@cc-doj.org or call (815) 724-1142 no later than January 14.  Participants will complete a variety of projects such as painting, beautifying schools, serving meals, and more.
