Oakland University and Chrysler come to Baldwin as part of Martin Luther King Day of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.  This year, as in year’s past, Baldwin Center was a site for over 60 volunteers as part of MLK Day of Service.  Volunteers came from Oakland University on Saturday January 19th and volunteers came from Chrysler on Monday January 21st and Tuesday January 22nd.

Volunteers turned over mulch in the gardens and hoop house, sorted clothes in the Clothes Closet, painted and spruced up the Youth Center, served a meal in the soup kitchen and painted the women’s bathroom.

To see more about what these volunteers accomplished see Chrysler Serves and OU Serves on YouTube.  If you are interested in volunteering at Baldwin contact Lisa Machesky at lmachesky@baldwincenter.org or 248.332.6101.
