DC Social Innovation Project partnered with Taproot Foundation DC and IMPACT to host MLK Pro Bono Dream Lab in honor of the annual MLK Day of Service. We brought together 30 volunteers with 18 local organizations for a day of impact through pro bono service. During the five-hour event, volunteers worked with representatives from organizations on projects ranging from designing a new brochure to providing strategic advice on recruiting and engaging board members.
All of this great work resulted in about $12,000 in free assistance for organizations making a difference in the lives of DC residents. One participant remarked, “The volunteers were so helpful, we did in a day what would have taken us about a year to figure out on our own.” To get a first-hand look at the event, check out some of our favorite tweets and pictures from the day.
