MLK Day of Service
January 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Pasadena Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in partnership with the Pasadena/Altadena Ivy Foundation will celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day with service in our community. Dr. King inspired so many people and touched so many lives. His impact on the world through his ministry earned a National Holiday in his name that celebrates and honors him as it keeps his dream alive. Racism and equality were two areas that Dr. King ministered about during his time and we must continue to lead by example because we still struggle with these issues in our communities. We still have a lot of work to do, and as dedicated members of the Pasadena Chapter of AKA in partnership with the Pasadena/Altadena Ivy Foundation, we are committed to serving all mankind which means giving back to those that are in need.
- We will honor Dr. King on Monday, January 21, 2019 by supporting our veterans, low income families, and children of incarcerated parents through giving them grocery store gift cards so they can put food on their tables.
- We will also donate blankets, coats, gloves, hats, socks and scarfs to Union Station Homeless Shelter in Pasadena.
We know that service and giving back to others is a strong way to make a difference in our community and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in partnership with the Pasadena/Altadena Ivy Foundation is passionate about serving and doing work that continues to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
You can join us in this endeavor by making a donation on this website and designating it for MLK Day of Service.
