In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Norwalk Historical Society and the Love All Project will be hosting, “Kids Care: MLK Jr. Service Day Project”. This free family-friendly Service Day Project supports the non-profit organization, Connecticut Institute for Refugees and Immigrants and takes place on Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 1:00pm – 4:00pm at the Norwalk Historical Society Museum. Come to the museum to create welcome bags for immigrants and refugees settling into Connecticut. Participating families are encouraged to bring individually packaged non-perishable snacks to include in the welcome bags. Along with filling the bags with goodies, children will be able to create cards and decorate the bags! In addition to the service project, children will get the opportunity to create peace doves, heart origami and learn more about Dr. King’s mission for peace, freedom and justice for all.
