Hundreds of volunteers and Rochester's Mayor, Lovely Warren, at "King for a Day" 2014

On Saturday, Jan 18th, hundreds of volunteers came out to support our largest annual community service event of the year, "King for a Day" 2014!

All of our great volunteers made this day such a huge success! Everyone first gathered at the Edgerton Recreation Center for breakfast, while the event kicked off with a musical selection from Dr. Julius Dicks and the MLK Gospel Ensemble followed by a welcome message from the City of Rochester's newly elected mayor, Lovely Warren. RochesterCares' Team Coordinators led groups of volunteers to service projects throughout the region. It was an incredibly inspiring day of service in honor of Dr. King.
