MLK Day of Service

YNPN Portland and Urban League of Portland Young Professionals are partnering again for a day of service and reflection honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Meet us on January 19 at Harper’s Playground (2525 N Dekum St ) in Arbor Lodge Park as we beautify this inclusive park for children of all abilities! Dress according to the weather and we’ll provide gloves and supplies.

Lunch will also be provided. Following service in the park, join Urban League and YNPN members at the Kenton Firehouse to warm up, socialize over lunch, and participate in a facilitated MLK Day reflection. The program will wrap up before 2:00pm.

We are asking all volunteers to bring new socks for children ages 10-12. We will be collecting and donating them to Alder Elementary’s 5th grade class. Joining us for the day (and for every pair of socks you donate that day) gets you entered to win one of two pairs of Blazer Tickets for the 1/19 Sacramento Kings game that evening.

Blazer Tickets will be raffled off at the end of the day!  Winners must be present to collect their tickets.
