The goal of OneMontville is to highlight the Respect, Acceptance and Kindness for which Montville Township is known, and to make it a priority at all times. The OneMontville MLK Day of Respect and Community Service allows participants to work on meaningful service projects that benefit the community. It also brings the community together for an opportunity to learn more about our neighbors, and friends. No one is too young or too old to help OneMontville to help others. Through kindness we learn about each other.”
