Peace of Lansing's 'Make Monday Matter' Day of Service
In celebration of the International Day of Peace, Peace of Lansing is hosting a whirlwind one-day volunteering event. Anyone can sign up to help with a variety of causes around town for one-hour time slots. The goal is to enrich the local community through a wide range of tasks, including weeding and laying mulch at area parks, restoring an urban garden, creating greeting cards for senior citizens and more. Volunteers can join up at any time and can participate in as many or as few activities as they wish. Activity schedule and sign-ups are available on the website. Refreshments will be provided in the morning and guitarists from MI Chicks with Picks will entertain volunteers with a 5-7 p.m. concert at AA Creative Corridor. All are invited to drop off school supplies for children in need.
8 a.m.-7 p.m. FREE. AA Creative Corridor, 1133 S. Washington Ave., Lansing. peaceoflansing.info.
