PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS FOR WALKUP REGISTRATION ON THE DAY OF THE MLK DAY OF SERVICE!
Thank you for your interest in the 2023 Athens MLK Day of Service! Below you will find details about the Day of Service and this specific project.
Kick-off Event: 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM at Clarke Central High School (350 S. Milledge Avenue)
Volunteer Shift: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM at Brooklyn Cemetery (park behind Clarke Middle School at 1235 Baxter Street)
Volunteers will work to beautify the historic Brooklyn Cemetery by removing invasive species of plants, cleaning up limbs/branches that have fallen from trees, using mulch to fill in sunken graves, and plant perennials in several places around plots and graves.
- This site is for ages 12+. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
- Volunteers should wear long pants, long sleeves, and close-toed shoes.
- Please bring your own work gloves if you have them.
- Dress in layers as this site is outdoors.
- Bring a filled reusable water bottle.
Children under 18 should be registered by their parent/guardian. To do this, select "Add Attendee" at the top of the registration page BEFORE submitting your registration form. Check the box that says "Check if minor" and you will then be prompted to enter a first and last name (you do not need to enter an email for a minor). All volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
We are not able to accommodate large group registrations. If you have a group that would like to volunteer at the same site, each individual must separately register through Engage Georgia.
Rain or shine! Please dress appropriately. We recommend wearing closed toed shoes and pants, and dressing in layers. Please bring a filled reusable water bottle and sunscreen/bug spray as necessary.
We love seeing photos! Please post your pictures on social media with the hashtag #AthensMLKDay.
