Homestead Middle School to get makeover as part of City Year Miami's MLK Day of Service

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY – Homestead Middle School will be getting a makeover as Miami-Dade County Commissioner Juan C. Zapata joins hundreds of volunteers at City Year Miami’s 6th Annual MLK Day of Service to beautify the school on Monday, January 20, 2014, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

More than 1,000 community volunteers will paint murals, restore park areas, landscape community spaces and lead educational activities for children – all in celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

City Year Miami, a national education non-profit, celebrates Dr. King's birthday every year as a "day ON, not a day Off" by honoring his legacy through service projects.

“By engaging the community to help physically transform and beautify Homestead Middle School, this project will help pay tribute to the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr.,” Commissioner Zapata said.

For more information, please contact Commissioner Zapata’s office at 305-375-5511.
