Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?”
As a part of President Obama’s national call to service initiative, United We Serve, the Martin Luther King holiday has been designated MLK Day of Service. It encourages people to utilize the MLK holiday not as a day off, but a day “on” to become engaged in service activities to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Each year, Americans across the country answer Dr. King’s question by coming together to serve their neighbors and communities.
Locally, this year, more than 100 students and parents from the Elmwood Franklin School in Buffalo participated in this event by joining Meals on Wheels for Western New York. Students from beginners to eighth grade joined their parents in delivering meals to homebound seniors and disabled individuals in the local community.
Thank you to all of the students and parents who participated!
