Kids Care – An MLK Day Community Event

January 16 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join The Iowa Children’s Museum on Monday, January 16th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for free museum admission and special activities to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is a National Day of Service, so we invite families to not only spend time together during their day off—but to support their neighbors through service and learning opportunities!
Event activities:
Free museum admission: The museum will be open to all from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, January 16th. We will close at 1:00.
Service opportunities: Kids and families are invited to participate in two service opportunities. We will assemble activity kits that will be donated to local community partners to support families during difficult times (The Iowa Children’s Museum will provide all materials and facilitate kit assembly). We will also be collecting donations for the Coralville Community Food Pantry (visit coralvillefoodpantry.org/donategoods to view their wish list).
Learning opportunities: During the event, families can view a mobile exhibit from the African American Museum of Iowa. We will also have free books about the life of Dr. King from Early Childhood Iowa and book recommendations from the Coralville Public Library to help families continue the conversation beyond their time at the museum.
Special thanks to the GEICO Philanthropic Foundation for making this event possible!
