Event Overview

Each year, we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by coming together in service. Save the date for our annual celebration of MLK Day of Service by joining us for a volunteer project with the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Michigan, the community partner for Operation Motown Reimagination. At the Boys & Girls Club, we will be completing a variety of indoor, hands-on projects that support youth health and well-being. Volunteers will construct yard games such as a gaga court, ladder golf, and corn hole, to encourage the club members to stay active throughout the winter months. Other projects to be completed include mural painting, organizing, and Scrub the Club. Join us for an exciting and inspiring day!

What To Wear

Wear clothes that are comfortable and ready to work, and your blue Mission Continues t-shirt. If you don't have one, we will provide one upon check in.

What to Bring

Bring a reusable water bottle! Pro Tip: plan to be hands-free while keeping your belongings close by wearing a fanny pack or a small camping backpack rather than bringing a bag or a purse.


Parking is available in the parking lot behind the club off Petoskey.

Inclement Weather

While all projects are indoors, we will monitor road conditions in the event of severe weather. At times, the Boys and Girls Club will close if it is extremely cold since many of the youth walk to the club. Stay alert to your email for updates.
