WINGS Atlanta Showed Up for MLK Day of Service

Posted by 224f on February 17, 2015 · Flag

Monday, January 19 was a big day for more than 100 staff, AmeriCorps members, parents, and WINGS kids. That's right, we participated in a Day of Service on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday.

South-View Cemetery may seem like a strange place for a service project, but it was actually the original resting place of Dr. King before his remains were relocated to the current Martin Luther King, Jr. Center. 


South-View Cemetery, centrally located about 15 minutes from downtown Atlanta, was founded in 1886 under the premise that a dignified burial place should be available for all. From its inception, these hallowed grounds have carried no restriction as to race, creed or religious affiliation, as did many southern cemeteries operating during the same period.

For our service project, the WINGS Atlanta team planted trees, planted flowers, cleared brush and beautified the surroundings in this beautiful intown oasis.
