Welcome to MetroWest’s 2022 MLK Day of Service – hosted by J-LOFT and Volunteer Ventures! Sunday, January 16, 2022.

Out of an abundance of caution, we have adapted the format of the event from in-person to kit-based: volunteers are invited to pick up pre-assembled kits of lasagnas, banana breads, soup jars, or desks – make them at home – and drop them off later in the day or the following morning. 

Don’t need a kit? Download our Digital Kit, get your own ingredients, and just drop it off when it’s ready!

Everyone residing in the MetroWest area (and beyond) is invited to volunteer, regardless of temple or group affiliation!

Here’s what you can make:

1) Banana Breads (3 per kit) – simple, easy and fun recipe! All ingredients as well as baking trays provided, except oil (1/2 cup per bread). 

2) Lasagnas (2 per kit) – a bit more challenging, yet just as fun recipe to make! All ingredients as well as baking trays provided, except eggs (1 cup per lasagna). 

3) Soup Jars (10 per kit) – fun, very easy, and suitable for younger kids. All ingredients and jars are provided. 

4) Desk (1 per kit) – great for parent-youth teams! Desks will be made from a pre-cut prepared kit, and will then be donated to families from the Harmony Grove School in Framingham. Basic tool-use (drills and sanders) experience recommended. We have a limited number of desk kits, and will be reserved on first-come-first-serve basis. Power tools available to borrow as well.

Participation at the event is free.
