Pope Branch Park Restoration Alliance celebrates the life and legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. offering our 10th annual National Day of Service at Pope Branch Park. We reflect on the work of the late Mr. Joseph Glover, community and environmental activist; by continuing to create unique opportunities for city agencies, ANCs, schools and universities, environmental organizations, community merchants, and neighbors to provide a beautification project in a blighted and neglected area.

Volunteers will gather for refreshments, receive a brief welcome and announcements, follow team leaders to affected areas and return to the park for debriefing at Noon.

Tools, gloves, pickers, bags, coffee, hot chocolate, drinking water, comfort station will be provided.  All collected items will be sorted for recycling and weighed for data reporting.
