MLK Day of Service for Providence students tomorrow
Tomorrow could be just another Saturday, but for dozens of students at a Providence school, it will be a day of cleaning, learning and service to the community.
Saturday marks the first Martin Luther King Day of Service, organized by Mayor David Cicilline and MLK Hall of Fame committee Lisa Niebels.
Students from the MET School will clean up along Broad Street, and there will be a screening of The Children’s March, a documentary about youths who were arrested and sent to jail in Birmingham, Ala., in the 1960s.
“This is about helping our children understand the power they have to change the world,” Cicilline said in a statement. “It’s my hope that the annual MLK Day of Service will help inspire our youth to become catalysts for social change in our community.”
The group will meet tomorrow at 10:15 a.m. near the United Methodist Church on Broad Street.
