On Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2015, Social Capital Inc., along with our community partners, will host a volunteer service learning event in Franklin Park with the Franklin Park Coalition. Volunteers will work on woodlands restoration by cleaning the park, as well as reflect on current civil rights issues, the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, and the connection between the two.
Join us at the Franklin Park Clubhouse in the morning for discussions and activities about civil rights issues, past and present. Afterwards we’ll head into the park to help clear invasives that are killing young native trees and do other green improvement projects.
The Franklin Park Coalition, an SCI host partner site, encourages health, wellness, and positive community connections. They run programs year-round, including volunteer days focusing on youth and civic engagement.
Bring a bag lunch and snacks, we’ll have coffee and donuts to start the day.Read more
