Pinnacles Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Event

Join Pinnacles National Park in making Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day on, not a day off with a service project in the park!

“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Designated as a federal holiday in 1938 MLK Jr. Day celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This day honors his legacy by being the only federal holiday recognized as a national day of service that encourages citizens to be empowered and get involved with their communities.

Join Pinnacles as we make it a day on and not a day off with a service project in the park on January 16th.  The service project will start at 9 am this Monday. Meet at the East Entrance Visitor Center at 8:30 am for registration.  To reflect Dr. King’s love for community, Pinnacles Partnership is partnering with the San Benito Community Food Bank for the event. There will be a donation bin for canned goods at the registration table. Volunteers are encouraged to bring nonperishable items to donate.

The service project will be three hours long wrapping up at noon. Come prepared with sturdy shoes, a water bottle and a great attitude. All tools and necessary personal protection equipment will be provided by the park as well as water. Service projects are family friendly. All are welcome!

Groups over 15 please register. Children under 18 need a parental release form signed.
