Service For Peace is an independent nonprofit organization providing service and learning opportunities through community projects which promote transformational and sustainable personal and community development around the world.
What we do: We bring together people and partners of diverse faiths, ethnicities, nationalities, generations, and cultures to address profound social needs by discovering commonality and genuine appreciation for differences – all through service.
What we believe in: We believe that peace begins with the inner peace fostered by service to others and that active cooperation provides the foundation and the real hope for peace.
More and more children and families in neighborhoods and communities throughout America are going to bed hungry! You can lend a helping hand in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
How you can get involved!
• Host a Sunday Supper www.handsonnetwork.org/events/mlk Ask participants to bring some non-perishable food items with them that you can gather and give to your local food pantry or food bank.
• Encourage your church or faith community to organize a MLK Jr. Food Drive and have them bring those items in on the weekend of Jan. 18th-20th 2013. Just assign one person to collect the food and deliver it to your local food pantry or FOOD BANK.
• Ask MLK volunteers to bring some food items with them when they come to volunteer on MLK Day of Service!
