Looking for a place to serve and donate your time on MLK Day? Try this Hands on Atlanta Project
Hands on Atlanta and the HELP Org are teaming up on Martin Luther King Day with community members throughout the metro-Atlanta area, to beautify the community garden on English Avenue.

Either way, get out of the house and support Dr. King's non-violent movement for universal peace and understanding.
