Martin Luther King, Jr. National Service Day – January 17, 2022
Branches is proud to have celebrated MLK Day in 2022 through another Day of Service. Thanks to all the volunteers who served especially from First UMC of Miami, Mandarin UMC, and Repair the World. Also, A huge thank you goes out to Molina Healthcare for sponsoring this special day.
In partnership with AmeriCorps, Branches once again honored Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 17th, 2022 through a day of community service at all three of our sites, Branches Florida City, Branches South Miami and Branches Lakeview in North Miami.
Branches Florida City celebrated its 12th Annual “Florida City, Love Yourself” MLK Day of Service as dozens of volunteers, staff, AmeriCorps members, several youth and the Branches South Miami team came together to beautify the Florida City community. The team re-mulched the Branches property, scrubbed tables and chairs, and provided painting, landscaping and repairs for a Branches family’s home. It was another fantastic day of service!
Branches South Miami brought together several volunteers to build a beautiful “Pizza Garden”. Volunteers planted peppers, tomatoes and basil, and the Branches staff are very excited about tending the garden with their students to one day hopefully soon making pizzas together with the ingredients from their own backyard.
Branches Lakeview in North Miami hosted its 4th Annual “United We Stand” MLK Day of Service as several staff and AmeriCorps members beautified the Lakeview Elementary School across the street from Branches through painting, mulching and more.
THANK YOU to all the wonderful volunteers for your support!
