Small Acts, Big Impacts: A Day of Service

Cost: Free with admission

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.

Make a Welcome Card for and help collect “Friendship Basket” supplies to support the Refugee and Immigrant Assistance Center, an organization dedicated to providing comprehensive services to refugees, asylees, and immigrants in Massachusetts. Friendship Baskets are given to elderly or families with young children as a way to help them receive supplies that might otherwise cause a financial burden while also welcoming them into their new community. Most needed items are:

  • Cleaning supplies such as dish soap, all-purpose cleaner, sponges, laundry detergent, paper towels, trash bags
  • Hygiene supplies such as toilet paper, Kleenex, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, lotion, razors, shaving cream, and feminine hygiene products

All Friendship Basket supply donations will benefit The Refugee and Immigrant Assistance Center.

Advance reservations are always required to visit the Museum.
