To honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County’s Jewish Volunteer Center, Jewish Community Relations Council, and Palm Beach Atlantic University will partner to host a day of allyship and service to unite the community on January 16. Now in its eighth year, the program brings together nearly 1,000 members of all faiths, races, and ages to volunteer with organizations across Palm Beach County, and then join together for a ceremony of solidarity against all forms of hate.
Members of the community are invited to participate in two ways. The first is to engage in hands-on volunteer projects that are open to all ages and abilities. Volunteer opportunities available throughout Palm Beach County include sorting at food banks, beach cleanups, community revitalization projects, animal care, and more. See the full list here.
The second opportunity is to join together during the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Ceremony at 4 p.m. Get an inside look at the Palm Beach County Remembrance Project, a groundbreaking initiative to address our county’s local history, plus hear reflections from our local community’s recent Civil Rights Journey to Alabama and Georgia, and honor the recipients of the annual Tikkun Olam Award, presented to three individuals for their efforts to represent Dr. King’s vision for a tolerant, just, and kind world.
