                            Ohio Homecoming 24 Hour Day of Service

                            Rehabbing Martin Luther King High School

                                               Cleveland, Ohio

               Martin Luther King High School (MLK) was built in 1972, just four years after the assassination of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Standing at the corner of East 71st and Hough in Cleveland, it was a prominent staple in the community.   Citizens were proud "“ not only because of the school "“ but also because it bore the name of Dr. King.  Less than forty years later, Martin Luther King High School is deteriorating. 

                MLK, a career campus, houses some of the most gifted and hard working students in the city.  Students are prepared for health care professions, law and municipal careers, and civil service.  Sadly, these gifted students are forced to share text books, sit in classrooms without heat, and stare at walls that haven't been painted in years.  Lights are burned out, light covers are missing, paint is chipping, and ceiling panels are missing, among other things.  MLK seniors have been forced to graduate off campus for over 5 years because the auditorium isn't up to par.

                These students deserve a better facility. 

                A group of young professionals has assembled to help rejuvenate Cleveland.  These individuals are from different industries, have different passions, and are of different ethnicities, but have one goal "“ making Cleveland a better place.

                Ohio Homecoming is the movement.  This year, Ohio Homecoming has chosen to rehabilitate Martin Luther King High School.  Over 400 volunteers from all over northeast Ohio will gather on July 20 and July 21 for a 24-hour day of service. 

                Projects include cleaning, painting, replacing lights and covers, repairing broken glass windows, buffing the floors, cleaning the carpet, repairing seats in the auditorium, replacing ceiling tiles, landscaping, painting the lockers, and painting 3 murals.

                The task is enormous, but the benefits are great.  With your help, we'll be able to breathe life back into MLK and restore it to the great school it once was.  Not only will the students benefit, but the rehabilitation of the high school will unite the community and reignite their sense of pride. 

                We need volunteers, sponsors, and donations for the rehabilitation to be a success.  Please consider donating your time or resources to help in this great project.
