Also on Monday, students from the East Orange School District and Montclair State University, senior volunteers, and employees from the City of East Orange observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a citywide day of service.

Members of the East Orange Department of Public Works, approximately 50 student-athletes from the East Orange School District, a group of East Orange seniors, and 17 student volunteers from Montclair State University cleaned various areas within the city, as well as in the East Orange Senior Center and Fellowship Civic Center. Other activities included letter writing to soldiers and creating a peace and equality quilt.  

“It only seems fitting to honor the legacy of Dr. King with the first citywide day of service in our community,” said Mayor Lester E. Taylor III. “What I especially love about this event is the opportunity it presents for our young people and seniors to work together. I hope that this is the start of many more intergenerational activities in East Orange.”
