MLK Day of Service 2023                                                         

Each year, on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a National Day of Service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. We invite you to join us in one of our many MLK Day Volunteer Events and use the holiday as a time to learn, listen, and reflect on the racial injustice that still exists in our country. 

2023 MLK Day of Service Recap

  • Project Vitamin C was a success! There were 196 volunteers that came out to the City of Glendale to represent HandsOn Greater Phoenix and the City of Phoenix, collecting just over 10k lbs of citrus that was donated to community food banks to give to those in need.
  • Ben's Bells welcomed 26 HandsOn volunteers to create and paint clay ornaments. At the project, volunteers learned the importance of spreading intentional kindness to better the Phoenix community!
  •  At St. Mary's Food Bank, 17 HandsOn volunteers worked the assembly line to sort, pack, and distribute nonperishable items.
  • In the morning and evening, we had 7 HandsOn volunteers help to prep, cook, and serve breakfast and dinner at St. Vincent de Paul!

 A huge thank you to all that helped on the day of service!
