HRC MLK Day of Service

  • The Family Place Resale Shop 11722 Marsh Lane Dallas, TX, 75229 United States (map)

Join Us on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day for a Day of Service on Monday, January 21st.

Once again, we will celebrate MLK Day with a day of service. We hope you all will join us in transforming this national holiday into a “day on, not a day off” meant to turn Dr. King’s teachings into a day of action across the country.

On Monday, January 21st, we will be working to benefit The Family Place. The Family Place empowers victims of family violence by providing safe housing, counseling and skills that create independence while building community engagement and advocating for social change to stop family violence.

The Family Place also includes a Resale Shop that serves a vital role for their clients who often give up everything to flee for safety. Clients are provided with vouchers to purchase what they need at the Resale Shop so that they can start new lives. Our volunteer work will be helping the staff at the Resale Shop with accepting donations, sorting merchandise, displaying items for sale and general clean up around the store.

There are two shifts available – 9:30 am- 1:30 pm and 1:15 pm to 5:30 pm. Please sign up for a volunteer shift here!
