School’s Out, Now What? MLK Jr. Day | Sound Shore Moms of Westchester

If a day off from school has you wondering what you’ll do to entertain your kids all day, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve rounded up a few local events going on for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 16th in the Sound Shore area. Enjoy!

MLK Jr. National Day of Service

On Monday, Jan. 16, and the days surrounding, AmeriCorps invites you to:

  • engage with your community and create constructive action;
  • act on Dr. King’s legacy of social justice and equity; and
  • recommit by volunteering to serve others. You can clean up a public space, mentor a young person, or help those who are food insecure.
