MLK Day Service Project

This year, the VLP will host a day of service on Monday, January 15th. We want to give our neighborhood youth an opportunity to give back to their community. On MLK Day from 10am-Noon, our students and community volunteers will be working on projects to benefit Meals on Wheels, Operation Gratitude, and BARCS.

Additionally, VLP will organize a community clean-up day from 1-4pm on January 15th. We are looking for neighborhood volunteers to help straighten, clean, and re-alphabetize the library bookshelves and organize supply closets.
