MLK Day of Service at Lachat Town Farm | Kids Out and About Fairfield County, CT

MLK Day of Service at Lachat Town Farm

People all across the country will observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day in various ways. Many commemorate King's life and work is by participating in a day of service and reflecting on the messages he spread throughout his life. Our 3rd Annual MLK Day of Service is an opportunity for our community to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service and volunteerism. This year we will be working with local charity Person to Person (P2P) to stuff laundry bags full of necessary household goods. In the barn (masks required and limiting capacity for safety), volunteers will be walking through an assembly line putting together household goods like laundry detergent, dryer sheets, Lysol Wipes, Kitchen Sponges, Dish Soap, Tissues, Shampoo, Conditioner, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Soap, and Deodorant, etc. Items can be dropped off at the barn before Wednesday January 15th. P2P currently serves approximately 28,000 individuals in lower Fairfield County, including the towns of Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport, and Wilton.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.
While visiting the farm to participate in our service project, further honor Dr. King by enjoying a StoryWalk®, featuring the children's story, Liberty's Civil Rights Road Trip. StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity where the story unfolds along a series of stations placed along the farm.
Sweet P Bakery will be in attendance selling their delicious s'mores kits and other goodies. Sweet P Bakery is a non-profit bakery dedicated to creating opportunities for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Stay and enjoy your s'mores around the fire and reflect on this important day!
You can register for as many bags as you are interested in filling or donating. We also welcome donations for others to fill bags if you are unable to attend.
Registration fee: $15 per bag. Your fee helps to off set the cost associated with items to be included in the packages and donated to P2P.
 
*Due to the uptick in Covid cases, we are moving the event outside. This is a rain, snow, or shine event and we are hoping the community will come together and brace the elements to serve in honor of MLK. We have also organized time slots for safety.
