Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service at Irving Park
Please join us in paying tribute to the enduring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by standing together in support of Portland's Historic Albina Neighborhood. Through volunteering with SOLVE, we have the opportunity to not only commemorate the remarkable life and impact of Dr. King but also to make a significant difference in this iconic neighborhood and community.
By coming together to enhance the environment in this vital district, we not only celebrate Dr. King's vision of equality and justice, but we also encourage business patronage and community support. We believe that our collective efforts will contribute to a brighter, more equitable future for everyone.
Your participation in this event will truly make a positive and lasting impact, and we hope to see you there as we honor Dr. King's memory and work towards building a stronger, more inclusive community.
