Join more than 1,600 Highland Park residents as they come together for a day of service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior and his legacy. The 7th Annual Day of Service is co-sponsored by the Park District of Highland Park and the Highland Park Human Relations Commission.
Attendees will participate in 34 service projects supporting veterans and military families, helping those less fortunate, supporting environmental causes and reaching out to help with world issues. The event is coordinated by local students, school Parent-Teacher Organizations, local agencies and not-for-profits as a way to channel student’ time off from school and the general public in ways befitting King’s legacy to create a stronger community.
