United Way, YWCA and 100 volunteers honored Martin Luther King Jr. through a day of service

Volunteers beautified YWCA Colonel H Zubkoff Headstart early education center

United Way of Miami-Dade honored and celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. through service on Saturday, Jan. 18. More than 100 volunteers rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty for a beautification project at YWCA Colonel H Zubkoff Headstart, the YWCA’s largest early education center, with 30 teachers and administrators serving 160 students across the facility.

The YWCA has been a United Way partner agency since 1924, empowering women and promoting diversity and equality. Volunteers built new furniture, updated décor and provided a fresh coat of paint to the family resource room, all to offer a welcoming space for children, parents and families to spend quality time together. The space provides daily educational services to children ages 0-5 and emphasizes social, physical and emotional cognitive skills development, all the while providing mental health and family support to hundreds of children and families throughout Miami-Dade.

The volunteer project was sponsored by Bilzin Sumberg, with support from Guzman & Company and the Miami Dolphins.
