That’s the message LaMarco Mitchell takes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s work and it’s what drives him in his role working with Lakewood youth to teach them about financial literacy as a senior community engagement manager with Twin Star Credit Union.
“When you give love, you get love,” Mitchell says, who also gives a nod to his mother who taught him about love and kindness.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service holiday is Monday, Jan. 16, 2023. As we celebrate this year, we honor the theme: Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.
Each day from now until Jan. 16 we will highlight the work and volunteerism of people who have spent their time giving back to Lakewood. The videos will air on the city’s YouTube channel, the city website under “News & Updates” and on the MLK Day event page. They’ll also be shared on the city’s social media channels.
Feeling inspired? We have a list of local organizations that need volunteers or donations to help with their respective causes and missions to give back to our community on our MLK Day event page.
