Pack Student Supply Kits: Drive-In Event (MLK Day)
Drive-in to write encouraging letters and fill bags with screen free activities, school supplies, and snacks for students at Watts Empowerment Center.
A SPECIAL DRIVE-IN MLK DAY PROJECT:
- Write encouraging letters and fill bags or backpacks with healthy snacks, art supplies, school supplies, and other fun screen free activities for students at Watts Empowerment Center.
- Drive-in event will be broken up in 5 sessions throughout the day. Before each session begins, all stations will be sanitized and safely distanced from each other.
WHY: Studies have shown that access to school supplies has a positive impact on students' learning. Students who can depend on a backpack filled with supplies feel more confident in their abilities and are able to focus on learning. Students with access to supplies are able to stay engaged and interested, which is especially important in these challenging times.
COVID-19 SAFETY: Here are the guidelines we follow to ensure we provide a safe event for all volunteers.
TEAMS/GROUPS: When you sign-up, below, it will be for 1 vehicle. Each vehicle can bring up to 4 people from one household to participate (babies not included as participants). Only one person per car/household needs to sign-up. After you sign-up, you will be asked to let us know how many people from your household will be in your car.
PROJECT FEE: We're asking volunteers to "pay what you can" this year. A contribution of $5/participant would help us cover costs for supplies. After you've signed up below, you will receive an auto email that includes a payment link. Upon making payment, you will receive a confirmation email that you will need to show at check-in to enter the event.
CHECK-IN: Please plan on arriving at the time you signed up for. No early arrivals; you will need to wait for the previous session to end and sanitation to take place before entering.
DRESS CODE: Everyone attending must wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times. As you will be working with items that may get your clothes dirty, please dress casually, with closed-toed shoes. Please also remember to wear sunscreen and a hat.
ACCESSIBILITY: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodations to participate in this project please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

MLK DAY OF SERVICE: This is a part of L.A. Works’ MLK Jr. Day of Service 2021 event, our first ever multi-platform event to honor Dr. King’s life and legacy. The day-long, choose your own adventure service experience builds upon the anti-racism movement through: an interactive new March on Washington via Minecraft; virtual projects @home focused on systemic racism and advocacy actions; and a drive-in experience.
