The first annual SP/F Martin Luther King Day of Service was held in 2010. Over 500 individuals gathered at the Jewish Community Center of Central NJ to volunteer as part of Scotch Plains-Fanwood's 1st annual MLK Day of Service. The day started with an opening ceremony that featured speeches by Sen. Tom Kean (R-Westfield), Assemblywoman Linda Stender (D-Union), Scotch Plains Mayor Nancy Malool and Fanwood Mayor Colleen Mahr. Participants then dispersed to serve at approximately 35 project sites.

Six years later, the Day of Service has continued to expand and include more and more organizations and individuals in the community! SJM is sponsoring a few events throughout the day so please see the attachment below for the full list. The events are also listed in full detail on our calendar. Below is the website at which you can register to volunteer for events throughout the day! We hope to see you there!
