Just received word from a Reader who sends us this info on a local “Day of Service” on Jan. 19th (MLK Day) starting at the ACORN Offices in Burien (and as we previously reported, broken into in October):

Join Washington ACORN On January 19 in making Martin Luther King Day a true day of service.

First, we will join other organizations in a march on the Washington State Capitol in Olympia to talk to our legislators and have our voices heard.

Then, President-Elect Barack Obama has asked us to make this special day a Day of Service. Washington ACORN members will leave Olympia and gather in Tacoma to deliver the message that there is help for people facing mortgage foreclosure.

Meet in our Burien office at 7:30 AM to travel together to Olympia.

Burien office located at 134 SW 153rd Street.
