In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who said “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve,” the Town of Fort Mill is hosting its MLK Call to Service Day. PLEASE NOTE, due to recent and upcoming winter weather, the Town has rescheduled the event to include a full week, from Friday, Jan. 28 through Friday, Feb. 4, 2022.
The Town will be spotlighting seven area organizations that each need critical items for the populations they serve. We ask residents to serve their community and honor Dr. King’s legacy by donating the items listed below from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, and with extended hours until 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 2, at Town Hall (200 Tom Hall St., Fort Mill).
