Celebrate Martin Luther King Day on Monday, January 16 by giving back. Join Many Helping Hands in Central Square from 2-5pm and participate in a variety of volunteering opportunities on the 7th Annual Martin Luther King Day of Service.

How You Can Help

The day is jam-packed with different types of activities for those of all ages, everything to benefit Cambridge residents in need. Some available opportunities: make fleece scarves and blankets for the homeless, make Valentines for elders and veterans, sort clothes and assemble toiletry kits and emergency room activity bags.

You can also give back by donating! Feel free to bring non-perishable food, gently used winter clothing and children’s books. Volunteers of all ages are welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult.

About Many Helping Hands

Many Helping Hands is a group of Cambridge residents and volunteers that come together to help fellow residents in need. The group formed in 2010 to host the first MLK Day of Service in 2011. In addition to the many volunteer events the group organizes, they also aim to raise public awareness of the year-round needs of the community.

At last year’s Many Helping Hands MLK Day of Service, more than 2,600 volunteers came together in Central Square to make a difference in the lives of others! The volunteers spanned in age from 2 to 92 years old. They came from different backgrounds, different neighborhoods, different faiths, different ethnicities to follow in Dr. Martin Luther King’s footsteps and honor his legacy.

Join Many Helping Hands this Martin Luther King Day at various locations across Central Square! They can be found at City Hall, the Senior Center, the YWCA and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.
