MLK Day of Service - Tidy up Downtown Morning

Join us on this day to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and to celebrate community building through service! In association with Youth Service America, we celebrate MLK Day of Service by engaging members of the Hillsboro community to tidy up our Downtown. Your actions will help us to support the community in Downtown Hillsboro including local businesses, neighbors, and visitors. We will engage in activities including litter and graffiti removal, landscaping, and debris removal to make our Downtown area cleaner and more welcoming. We will meet at the old bank building on 4th and Main to deploy volunteers throughout the Downtown area. Free parking is available at the lot on this corner. Make sure to bring water, dress appropriately for the weather, wear sturdy shoes and a mask to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all volunteers.
