Help celebrate Martin Luther King Day

| 15 Feb 2012 | 11:19

    Martin Luther King Jr. once said “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” Dr. King was an inspiring figure who, besides being a civil rights activist, was also very involved in giving back to the community. This quote demonstrates his intrinsic belief that people should work towards a bigger cause. In order to celebrate Dr. King’s profound impact on the country, Pass It Along, a youth-driven service organization in Sussex County, is proud to announce this year’s annual Sunday Supper and Martin Luther King Day Service Project. On Sunday, Jan. 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Pass It Along will be holding a celebratory supper at the Sparta Ambulance Building. There will be a discussion about community as well as live music, a pot luck dinner, and a performance by the Poet Ibrahim Sadiq . We invite everyone to attend to celebrate the greatness of Dr. King and of serving the community. The following day, Monday, Jan. 16, a mural painting project will take place. We will board a bus and go to beautify a community center, and create care packages for those in need. Anybody who is interested in giving back to the community, regardless of age, is invited to attend. Please contact Patricia at 973-726-9777 or email her at to reserve a spot on the bus. Help us celebrate Dr. King’s legacy by benefiting the community and having a great time! Any further questions please contact the Pass It Along office at 973-726-9777. Holly Rudel Sparta
