Thursday Network's 20th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service 

"Everybody can be great because anybody can serve." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join us as we share this message with our friends and family and make Monday January 20th a "day on, not a day off."

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. We will also have the opportunity for kids to learn about other youth who are making a difference in their community. 

This year’s  goal is to deliver 1,200 packages to people in need throughout DC, Prince George’s County, and Montgomery County.
