Get Involved at MLK, Jr. School!
Volunteers needed right now!
“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don’t have to know Einstein’s “Theory of Relativity” to serve. You don’t have to know the Second Theory of Thermal Dynamics in Physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.”
- from “The Drum Major Instinct”, a sermon by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr, 1968.

Every year, we send volunteers to other PTA Auctions to help their gala events run smoothly. Want to help out in 2019?
Typical Needs: Serve food or beverages, check attendees in or out, coat check, etc. In turn, these PTAs will send volunteers to help at our auction! This is a fun opportunity to see how other school PTAs raise funds.
