Martin Luther King National Day of Service
MLK Day is one of OneOC’s four National Days of Service throughout the year. It gives the community an opportunity to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through meaningful service. Individuals, families, groups, and organizations can easily participate in this national initiative!
COVID-19 has devastated families and small businesses. For months families and individuals have struggled to make ends meet. Many have become reliant on local nonprofits or the kindness of neighbors during this time. The volunteer efforts of individuals, companies, and nonprofits can make all the difference in the world to an OC family or business.
Dinner & Dialogue
You’re Invited: MLK Day – Virtual “Dinner & Dialogue” Event
Monday January 18, from 5pm-6pm
Inspired by the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., OneOC in collaboration with the Orange County Food Bank, a program of Community Action Partnership of Orange County, invites leaders and community members from diverse backgrounds to come together to share a “virtual” meal, discuss issues that affect their community and highlight the power of each one of us to make a difference. In a year full of isolation, increasing fears and civil unrest, this is opportunity to build a stronger Orange County for all communities through “Dinner and Dialogue” with community leaders including…
• Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Nu Tau Lambda Chapter (OC) – Current Members & Alumni
• Community Action Partnership of Orange County – Mr. Gregory Scott, CEO
• MECCA, Multi-Ethnic Collaborative of Community Agencies – Iliana Soto Welty, ED
• OneOC – Tim Strauch, CEO
• Orange County Black Chamber of Commerce – Bobby McDonald, President & CEO
• The Dr. Dorsey – Rev. Dr, Charles Dorsey
Now in its 22nd year here at OneOC, community members can make their “day off” a “day on” with a Day of Service. Join us to celebrate MLK Day with nonprofits offering volunteer opportunities that address critical community issues.
OneOC will promote essential on-site and virtual service projects addressing critical community needs like unemployment, food security, education, etc.
On-site service projects must follow all safety guidelines recommended by the CDC. Virtual projects should not only engage volunteers of all ages, but also allow participants to support our local communities. Participate by posting your projects through the week of January 18th.
Nonprofits need support to deliver critical services needed in the community. Participate in MLK Day through on-site and virtual opportunities throughout the county.
