Any Suggestions for MLK Day Volunteering?

“Dear PoP,

I’m wondering if maybe you could ask your readers to send in potential projects for MLK Day of Service (unless you’re already collecting info). Most of the city has the day off, and a lot of projects I know are always set up for people to go and help out within their community. For instance, a few years back I volunteered @ Roosevelt doing cleanup, and spent a few hours with a ton of people cleaning out their field house. I’d love to see a good list of where I (and others) could donate some time on Monday.

Oh, and here’s 2 sites I found:

Here are some opportunities from Thanksgiving but if anyone has some MLK specific recs please leave in comments.
