Catalogue for Philanthropy charities found many creative ways to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a day “ON” to give back to the community and reflect on Dr. King’s important work. In addition to highlighting Catalogue charities’ volunteer efforts, one of our charities is also celebrating a wonderful partnership this week! See below the video for details.
For Love of Children
Volunteers from Accenture visited FLOC for MLK Day to sort some books, paint walls, put together care packages for and write letters of encouragement to their Postsecondary Scholars, and learn all about FLOC’s?programs.
A Wider Circle
A Wider Circle began their MLK Day with students from The George Washington University and American University, all of whom brought great energy and dedication to helping those they serve. Accenture employees also joined A Wider Circle for their 7th Annual Day of Service, offering their time and talents for a workshop on resume-writing and interview skills. (editors note: #Cataloguecheers to Accenture employees for attending?not one, but two Catalogue charities’ events!)
At Horton’s Kids, older youth participants saw “Selma” with U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. After the movie, the youth had the opportunity to take part in a group discussion on larger issues of civil rights and other themes from the film.
Our Daily Bread
Our Daily Bread is excited to celebrate their new partnership with Naomi Project of Northern Virginia, which mentors and supports at-risk moms! Signed on the dotted line in October, but tomorrow they’ll PARTY! Everyone is welcome to join at ODB’s Office in Fairfax City, 4-6 p.m.
