Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" To honor and celebrate the life of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Red Cross is encouraging Americans across the country to volunteer their time and talents to service projects during the 2020 MLK Weekend.
We hope that you will join us this upcoming Saturday, January 18th for our annual MLK Sound the Alarm Event in Fresno at the Westlake Mobile Home Park. This is an impactful, fun, and amazing way for volunteers to work together to strengthen our community and provide a solution to a devastating national problem, home fires.
While home fires are the most common disaster facing Americans today, they are also the most preventable. That is why, in 2014, the Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign with the mission of reducing fire related deaths and injuries by 25% nationwide.
This upcoming January, join us for our MLK Day of Service, where volunteers, partners, and community members will have the opportunity to team up to go door to door throughout Fresno to install free smoke alarms and provide preparedness education to local residents.
Everyone is welcome to participate! No need to be a registered Red Cross Volunteer or have any prior experience. The more volunteers that attend, the bigger impact we can have, so bring your mom, dad, neighbor, coworkers, friends, etc.!
We hope that you will join us in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy and RSVP today for the MLK Sound the Alarm Event on Saturday, January 18th, 2020.
