​MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

DAY OF SERVICE
JAN. 18, 2016​​

"Anyone Can Be Great,
​Because Anyone Can Serve."​​


Alternatives staff and AmeriCorps members took that message to the youngest citizens ​​of Hampton today, engaging them in a global service project, "Soles of Love."

155 children attending Y.H. Thomas Community Center, Girls, Inc., Wythe Presbyterian Day School, Bethel Church day care, and Inspiring Minds Youth Development Center, participated in the project.  

​​Not only did the young people learn about the life of Dr. King and his legacy of selfless service, but ​​shared that vision with poor children in the Dominican Republic and in India by sending new shoes (flip flops) with attached messages of love and hope.
