Burbank’s RSVP Program Asks For Donations And Help To Celebrate Martin Luther King Day


The City of Burbank RSVP Program is encouraging you to become a part of the solution by donating a new, or clean and gently worn coat. These coats will be used to warm men, women, and children in our community through Family Promise of East San Fernando Valley.
Invite your family and friends to become part of this great cause and bring your new, or clean and “gently worn” coat donations to any of the three Burbank locations starting Monday, January 10  through  Friday, January 14, 2011, Joslyn Adult Center, 1301 West Olive Avenue, Burbank City Hall, 275 East Olive Avenue, and the Burbank Police Fire, 200 North First Street.

The City of Burbank Retired Senior Volunteer Program –RSVP, would like to honor Veterans who have served our country by providing them with handmade items. In order to achieve this goal, we are asking for donations of 4-ply yarn and flannel or cotton print yardage for quilting. The dedicated RSVP – Sewing and Knitting Group will create hundreds of blankets, quilts, scarves, and hats and present them to community organizations who serve our veterans. Please bring your kind donation to Joslyn Adult Center, 1301 West Olive Avenue, Burbank. For more information please call 818.238.5353

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. The MLK Day of Service is part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
