YMCA to Celebrate Dr. King’s Legacy With Annual Family Service Project

In honor of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., our Ed Isakson Family YMCA will host its 6th annual MLK Family Service Project on Sunday, Jan. 19 at 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

As many as 500 volunteers will engage in making 7,500 bags of lunches to be delivered to MUST Ministries for distribution to those in need. Individuals and families (including children ages 5 and up) are encouraged to participate as we work together to strengthen communities and honor Dr. King’s legacy of service.

Watch the video below to see volunteers in action at a past MLK Family Service Project.

Since 2015, the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta Family YMCA has organized the service project, in partnership with MUST Ministries, to bring hundreds of community members together in joint effort to feed the homeless.

In addition to the MLK Family Service Project, the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta Family YMCA partners with MUST Ministries for a summer lunch program, which feeds more than 40 children each day during the summer.

Sign up now to volunteer for the MLK Family Service Project.
