So we’re getting ready for the MLK Peace Bench Project as part of this weekend’s MLK Day of Service. We started with the prep last weekend and came up with a couple of prototypes. Muchisimas gracias to our super volunteer leaders, Tom and Eddie! They’ll be helping the volunteers put these benches together. And a big thank you to the City of Austin for supporting this new project.
The “Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace Bench Project” is one of the most exciting projects taking place as part of the MLK Day of Service! Over the course of 2008, volunteers will construct 100 “peace benches” for placement at community centers in East Austin. The peace benches feature images, quotes and inspirational words related to Dr. King and his legacy. The benches will be places for people at community centers to sit, discuss, learn, inspire, and reflect on the teachings of Dr. King.
