At this online event, you will be hearing from local teachers about the issues they face and ways in which volunteers can provide ongoing support. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to participate in a card-making event, to show teachers their appreciation, followed by an online school-supply drive to sponsor local teachers and their classroom essentials. After learning about the impact COVID has had on educators' access to essential resources, you'll gain the resources to take action to support a local teacher. VOLUNTEER ACTIVITY:

  • Write a Letter/Card of appreciation/encouragement

LOCATION: This opportunity takes place online. You will be emailed the link to participate as we get closer to the date of the event.

MLK Day of Service is a defining moment each year when Americans across the country step up to make our communities more equitable and take action. Dr. King believed that "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" as he fought for systemic change. His example is our call to action. Participating in our Teacher Appreciation event is the perfect opportunity to recognize teachers for their dedication to the profession. It is even more important this year to recognize teachers’ hard work considering the flexibility they have shown while educating children in the middle of a pandemic. Teachers have had to transition from in-person, to fully remote, to different versions of hybrid learning in between. They have had to learn new and different ways to engage students from behind the screen of their computer in hopes of things going back to normal.
