Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a designated National Day of Service, to encourage all Americans to volunteer within their communities and honor the life and legacy of the Civil Rights leader. Join the Discovery Museum as we engage in small acts of service to benefit our neighbors.

Assemble no-sew beds and create simple toys for local shelter animals. Make a birthday card and help collect “Birthday-in-a-Box” supplies to support two local charities whose missions are to create special birthday moments for children who are experiencing homelessness or who are in the hospital in their birthdays. Most needed items are:

  • Colored/themed paper plates, paper napkins, paper cups (9 oz.), and paper straws
  • Happy Birthday banners
  • Birthday candles (18-24 count)
  • Boxed cake mix and jar frosting: chocolate, vanilla, or Funfetti (please ensure expiration dates are at least 4 months from date of donation)
  • Disposable cake pan (8”x8” or 9”x13”)

All birthday supply donations will benefit Birthday Wishes and The Confetti Foundation and can be donated to the collection bin in our lobby any time in January.
