Celebrate MLK Day with your kids and MomsRising!

Looking for a meaningful way to celebrate MLK Day with your child? Then plan to join us for a free, kid-friendly birthday party for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.! 

What:  Join us for free English/ Spanish story times, songs, crafts, activities, performances, and birthday cake as we celebrate Dr. King’s life and legacy in a way that kids can understand. In continuing Dr. King’s commitment to service, participants are asked to donate nonperishable food (especially peanut butter, canned meat, and pasta), new packaged toiletries (soap, toothbrushes, diapers, etc.), or new underwear/ socks for children and adults for local families in need served by Urban Ministries of Durham. Voter registration and information will also be available.

When:  The party will take place on MLK Day, Monday, January 19, starting at 10:30 a.m. with activities and special break out groups. At noon, we’ll all come together to sing Happy Birthday to Dr. King, learn freedom songs, share cake, and enjoy performances by Merrick-Moore Elementary Step Teams, El Centro Hispano’s Takiri Dance Ensemble, MusicianCorps, and #Epitome.

Where:  Northgate Mall’s Center Court. Northgate Mall is located at 1058 West Club Boulevard, Durham. The best entrances are 4, 2, and 10 located on the theater wing of the mall.

It’s going to be a lot of fun! Will we see you there? RSVP here so we’ll know to look for you.
