(MONROE, WA) – High school students in the Sky Valley are being encouraged by United Way of Snohomish County to volunteer to help Sultan-area seniors and people with disabilities in their homes with basic cleaning projects on Martin Luther King Jr. Day (MLK Day) on Jan. 21 as a way of honoring Dr. King’s life and mission.

Teens can register at www.uwsc.org/mlkday.php. For Twitter users, the hashtag for the event is #mlkdaysnoco

"Approximately 200 high school students from throughout the county are expected to participate in the national MLK Day of Service," said Neil Parekh, spokesman forUnited Way of Snohomish County.

"In its fourth year in Snohomish County, MLK Day is an intergenerational celebration where high school students volunteer to help seniors and people with disabilities, transforming Dr. King’s life mission and teachings into community service.

During this Day of Service, volunteers will help make a real difference through hands-on work, including assisting with household tasks and doing projects at local senior centers, added Parekh.

Teams of volunteers will be led by Senior Corps or other adult volunteers.

In addition to the project in Sultan, teen volunteers can choose from projects throughout Snohomish County. Other locations include Stanwood, Marysville, Arlington, Everett, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo and Lynnwood.

Organizations like school clubs, scout troops, and friends who want to volunteer together are encouraged to register as a group. Teens can also register individually.

The MLK Day of Service in Snohomish County is a partnership of United Way of Snohomish County, the YMCA of Snohomish County, Catholic Community Services and Senior Corps.

HOW TO VOLUNTEER

Volunteers must sign up in advance to participate. If you’re a teen aged 14-19, register online at www.uwsc.org/mlkday.php or contact United Way’s Youth United program at 425.374.5526 or email youthunited@uwsc.org. Volunteer slots at specific projects are on a space-available basis.

United Way is a community impact organization serving Snohomish County for more than 70 years.
