All residents of Huron Valley and the surrounding communities of Metro Detroit are invited to the events celebrating the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service in Downtown Milford. The HV MLK Day Committee will offer opportunities throughout January to participate in honoring the Dr. King holiday, from donating to their soup meal food drive to benefit Community Sharing Outreach Center’s food pantry, submitting to their art/writing/multimedia contest, to participating in the Drive-Up MLK Day Rally being held in lieu of the March on Main Street which is canceled for 2021 in accordance with statewide crowd size safety guidelines.
