Thousands Made MLK Day A Day On, Not a Day Off!

Montgomery County saw an amazing outpouring of volunteerism for the Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service. There were park clean ups, food and clothing collections, a huge volunteer fair and celebrations of the life of Dr. King and how we can all follow in his footsteps and be involved in service in our community.


2,300 participated in the Volunteer Center's event at the Marriott. They decorated and assembled snacks for foster care children; made fleece scarves and blankets for Montgomery Hospice; made 1,500 lunches for shelters with Whole Foods Market; braided paracord bracelets to go to veterans and active military through Operation Gratitude; learned about year-round volunteer opportunities from the nonprofits in the Volunteer Fair, and much more.

500 volunteers participated in the MLK Day event at the Silver Spring Civic building hosted by Montgomery County (MD) Alumnae Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Just a few of the projects volunteers completed there were Care Kits for domestic violence victims at Betty Ann Krahnake Center; pillows for seniors; letters for troops; and cards for children at Holy Cross Hospital.


The International Cultural Center and Seneca Creek Community Church also hosted hundreds of volunteers for many projects including packaging food and "move-in kits" for the homeless, giving blood, and making dog toys for animal shelters.  


And the MLK weekend started with over 125 volunteers at Montgomery College staffing the Maryland Science Bowl, an academic competition involving 43 teams and 26 high schools from all over the state. Volunteers from more than two dozen area companies, federal agencies, schools, and community organizations have signed up to serve as timekeepers, moderators, and judges. This included 30 from Washington Gas, this year's lead corporate sponsor.


Check out the Volunteer Center website, for photos and more details about all the amazing projects completed.

Ken Gar Community Center Renamed in Memory of Leonard Jackson
A ceremony renaming the Ken Gar Community Center in Kensington in honor of the late Leonard D. Jackson, a longtime resident and community activist in the Ken Gar community was held on Saturday January 25. The center is located at 4111 Plyers Mill Rd.

Leonard Jackson was a founding member of the Ken Gar Civic Association in 1959 and served as its president for more than 20 years.  He worked tirelessly with Montgomery County Government to make Ken Gar the County's first urban renewal program.  Dedicated to public service, he served on both the Maryland Commission of Human Relations and the Montgomery County Human Relations Commission, where he was a strong advocate for strengthening anti-discrimination laws.  Jackson also served on the Montgomery County Landlord-Tenant Commission, the Montgomery County Committee on Community Action and the Montgomery County Citizens Committee.  In the early 1990s, he was the African American Liaison to Montgomery County's Chief of Police.  For his dedication to the advancement of human rights in Montgomery County, he was inducted into the County's Human Rights Hall of Fame in 2002.

"It is a pleasure to honor the many contributions made by Leonard D. Jackson by naming the Ken Gar Community Center in his memory," said County Executive Isiah Leggett.  "Jackson lived a short distance from this center and worked tirelessly in pursuit of improved housing and educational opportunities for members of the community."

In January, Karla became Director of Community Engagement at Montgomery College.
The County Executive noted that the fiscal situation is better than in recent years but that significant uncertainty remains for FY15. The County Executive pointed to increased investment in affordable housing, language access, Gilchrist Center, and after-school programs and recreation facilities for youth. He highlighted several important goals in the upcoming budgets including after-school programs in every middle school and greater diversity in the middle management of the county government workforce.

LAAG members identified top priorities as: providing support for business development services to Latino businesses; ensuring affordable housing for Latino residents; increasing funding for the Gilchrist Center for Cultural Diversity; building the Latino workforce in the Montgomery County government through diversity and inclusion; providing sports, recreational, and job readiness programs for Latino youth; and increased funding to support public health for Latino community including Latino Health Initiative, Welcome Back Center, Leadership Institute for Equity and Eliminating Disparities, and implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act.

Wonderful People Doing Amazing Things:
Nominate Your Favorite for a Montgomery Serves Award

One of the great aspects of my job is that I get to see wonderful people doing amazing things nearly every day. Martin Luther King, Jr Day is, of course, one of the most inspiring days of the year. By 7:30 in the morning, the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity has filled the banquet hall at the Conference Center to honor Dr. King. Later that morning, more than 500 people were doing service projects under the leadership of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority at the Silver Spring Civic Building. By early afternoon, the Conference Center was filled again with two thousand volunteers under the guidance of our Volunteer Center. By mid-afternoon the Concert Hall at Strathmore was full of people celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. King thanks to the Fund for Montgomery and the MLK Commemorative Committee. And these were just a few of the activities in honor of Dr. King going on across the county that I was able to experience.

There isn't a MLK Day every week, but every week in Montgomery County is packed with community building activities that are the reason Montgomery County is such a special place. Last Sunday night, hundreds of people packed the Cabin John Middle School to celebrate the 2014 Chinese New Year (Year of the Horse) under the leadership of the Northwestern Chinese American Association of Greater Washington, our partners with our Xi'an Sister City. Thursday night we celebrated Karla Silvestre's five excellent years of service as Latino liaison and then the County Executive met with his Latin American Advisory Group to discuss the Latino community's priorities for the FY15 budget year. Saturday morning was particularly meaningful for me as I was able to attend the dedication of the Leonard D. Jackson Ken Gar Center in his beloved Ken Gar community. Leonard Jackson was a great crusader for fair housing and equal rights. He was one of the very first people I met when I returned home from college in 1970. As County Executive Leggett said at the dedication, Montgomery County would not be the welcoming community it is today if it were not for the good works of Leonard Jackson.

So, in that spirit, I urge you to think about the people and organizations that have made a difference in your life and take 30 minutes to nominate one of them for a Montgomery Serves Award. The Third Annual Montgomery Serves Awards event brought to you by the Fund for Montgomery and the Volunteer Center will be held on Monday April 28 at Imagination Stage. This event, along with the MLK Day events, Community Service Day, and our World of Montgomery Festival are the days that most inspire me and best showcase the wonderful and welcoming Montgomery County that we are working together to build. Here's the link to find out how to submit a nomination for a Montgomery Serves Award. The nomination deadline is Friday February 28.
