Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service- City Year Chicago at Gale Community Academy, January 15, 2018

On Monday January 15th, 2018,  a 1000 volunteers joined City Year’s AmeriCorps members at Gale Community Academy to participate in a day of service. City Year commemorates the civil rights movement and honors the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by celebrating Dr. King’s birthday as a “day ON, not a day off” through service projects such as mural and wall painting, restoring park areas, landscaping community spaces, and leading educational activities for children.

Volunteers came together to transform and beautify Gale Community Academy with murals, painting and light construction projects in an effort to reconnect, transform, uplift, and inspire the students, staff, and community.
