The 20th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service Blanket & Toiletry Drive is Thursday Network’s annual event to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. During the month of January, communities within DC, Prince George’s County, and Montgomery County will be asked to donate items and funds to create care packages for housing-unstable residents. On January 20, we will host a package assembly event in collaboration with Takoma Park Middle School’s student-led group, Difference Makers, to create care packages and deliver to people in need. Volunteers will assist in creating packages that consist of blankets, snacks, deodorants, feminine hygiene products (e.g., tampons and pads), floss, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpastes, soaps, and words of encouragement. This year’s  goal is to deliver 1,200 packages to people in need throughout DC, Prince George’s County, and Montgomery County. You can donate items by purchasing items from  Thursday Network’s Amazon List.

Register here to volunteer

Tickets will not be sold, but participants will be asked to donate items to make care packages.
