The Livingston Committee for Diversity sponsored the 14th Annual Day of Service in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday at Livingston High School.
Participants engaged in various service projects with local organizations, including assembling emergency kits, collecting non-perishable foods and supplies for local food kitchens and making crafts using recycled materials.
Projects included making musical instruments for children with special needs, holding a food drive with local Girl Scout troops, putting together toiletry kits for the Immigration and Refugee program and a homeless shelter sponsored by Lutheran Social Ministries, making cookie jars for the Temple B’nai Abraham TTO group, and more.
Visitors also watched the animated movie, "Our Friend Martin" about two students – one black and one white – who travel back in time and meet Dr. King, and live music performed by local bands Chromatic Funk and Castles. The day concluded with a walk around the Oval.
