A Day of Service
Local organizations will be in attendance at this year’s Breakfast so guests can sign up for
future volunteer opportunities to keep the spirit of MLK, Jr. Day alive throughout the year.

An important part of the Breakfast will be collecting new, age-appropriate books related
to MLK or the theme of diversity for second and third grade students in Worcester and
Fitchburg public schools – books they can take home, enjoy, and be proud of. Please bring a
new book with you to the Breakfast.
