Scotch Plains/Fanwood

Virtual Martin Luther King Day of Service

2021 Recap

It is easy during these days to feel alone and isolated.  Today we were not alone. 

Today we joined with 550 other families to volunteer at the Scotch Plains/Fanwood MLK Day of Service and contribute to over 1600 volunteer slots filled.

Today we helped create the community that we all want to live in.  

Together we:

delivered over 100 meals to seniors and vets
baked 40+ dozen brownies
collected and knitted 100's of hats and mittens for kids in need
created hundreds of Valentine's for seniors and vets
filled carloads of toiletries for families in need
covered our towns with over 50 hand-painted kindness rocks
joined with over 250 others learning about the legacy of Dr. King and how to make our world more whole, just and compassionate.

View pictures from the day on our Facebook page and share your own story with us.   The Opening Program is still available on both Scotch Plains and Fanwood's Facebook page if you would like to share it or view it again.  

Thank you, each and every one of you, for coming out today.   If you are interested in joining on the Planning Committee for 2022, please email and let us know!
