The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service marks the beginning of the year of service as millions of Americans honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and volunteer their time to improve their communities. Ocean City has participated in the Day of Service since 2008. Volunteers should register and pick up supplies 9 a.m. at the Howard S. Stainton Senior Center, 1735 Simpson Ave., and should wear appropriate clothing and footwear. The city will provide gloves and trash bags. All volunteers are invited back to the senior center after the cleanup for food and warm beverages.
