Searching for a volunteer opportunity for Martin Luther King Day of Service? There are several right here in the area!

Not available till Friday, January 24th? United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region is seeking volunteers to rejuvenate the basement in support of our Days of Caring. Volunteers will paint and put up shelving. Please click here to volunteer!

On MLK Day, Hudson River Housing is coordinating service projects that support their mission of improving lives and communities. Volunteers will help clean an emergency overnight shelter for homeless adults and assist with the renovation of the historic Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory, the hub of a large-scale neighborhood revitalization effort in the Middle Main Poughkeepsie neighborhood. These projects leverage the strength of local citizens to advance Dr. King’s dream of opportunity for all.

Check out their volunteer opportunities here.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh is also coordinating a project. All are welcome to volunteer. There will be tasks available for all experience levels. Help them build safe, decent and affordable housing for hard-working local families. Their page can be found here.
