Martin Luther King, Jr Day of Service

MLK 2020 Day of Service

Time: 10 a.m- noon

Celebrate MLK Day by joining EcoAction Arlington volunteers and community members cleaning up trash and debris from Four Mile Run and surrounding streets. Everyone is welcome; we will provide supplies and snacks.

We’re very pleased to sponsor our first School Participation Contest in conjunction with this event. This contest is open to all K-12 schools in Arlington (public and private). Any school that registers will get a certificate of participation and the option to have their group photo posted on social media. The schools with the top three levels of participation will each get a $50 gift certificate for pizza.

Fine print – we will determine the top three schools by calculating percentage of participants at the event compared to total school enrollment.

Please register here.
