Martin Luther King Jr Day

Monday January 15, 2018 | Projects available throughout Santa Cruz County

Many of us resolved to get more involved with needs of our community this year and Martin Luther King Jr Day offers the opportunity for you to get started on that commitment.

The Volunteer Center and fellow non-profits are gearing up for a day of civic action and volunteerism. We invite you to register for one of the projects offered throughout the county.


Each year hundreds of local residents are inspired to carry the principles of Dr Martin Luther King Jr forward through a day of community action.

Space is available for individuals, groups, and families to help maintain local beaches, support community members in need, or revitalize outdoor spaces.

Additionally, our program Friends Outside is hosting a Share the Warmth Clothing and Blanket Drive that will kick-off on MLK Day. You are invited to donate new and gently used coats, scarves, blankets, and new toiletries. Please bring items you would like to donate to the MLK Day Celebration or drop off your items at locations throughout Santa Cruz County between Jan 16-31.
