Event Overview

"Everybody can be great... because anyone can serve." To celebrate MLK National Day of Service, the Boston 1st Service Platoon is teaming up with Breaktime Cafe for a transformative service project. Join our veterans and community volunteers as we help Breaktime Cafe launch their new transitional employment program for young adults experiencing homelessness, where they can learn tangible hospitality, business, food/beverage skills to support them in achieving future full-time employment. We will be projects that include painting, deep-cleaning, and construction. This project is for ages 16+ and lunch will be provided.

What To Wear

Your TMC shirt, closed-toe shoes, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty

What to Bring

Your spirit of service!


Paid street parking and garage parking are available. This location is also within close walking distance to North Station so we would strongly recommend taking public transportation.

Inclement Weather

We will be indoors. If inclement weather becomes an issue where we need to cancel/postpone the event, we will send an email to all registered participants and post on our TMC Boston/Lowell Facebook Page.
