MLK Day Cape Cod Beach Clean Up
January 17 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (MLK Day) is the only federal holiday recognized as a National Day of Service – a “day on, not a day off” and people are encouraged to volunteer on ways to improve their communities. For the past 26 years, AmeriCorps programs across the country have been charged with leading the effort.
On Monday, January 17th, AmeriCorps Cape Cod is partnering with CARE for the Cape & Islands and the Center for Coastal Studies to organize a Cape-wide MLK Day Beach Cleanup. Participating volunteers will clean debris from 8 beaches spanning from Sandwich to Provincetown. Multiple time slots (10 AM-12 PM, 12 PM-2 PM) and locations are available. Social distancing and masking are encouraged. The goal of the day is to help preserve the health and beauty of Cape Cod’s shorelines for future generations through education and action.
