Memphis Stone & Gravel to Host 10th Annual MLK Day Of Service

Waking up on January 15, 2024, team members were greeted by the date of our highly-anticipated 10th annual MLK Day of Service. However, team members also woke up to the added surprise of several inches of snow and wintry mix.

A tradition adopted by Memphis Stone and Gravel and sister company Lehman-Roberts, this day originated to honor the legacy and resulting impact left by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This singular day carries immense weight of planning and impact to our neighbors in Memphis and North Mississippi – usually encompassing 40+ individual projects in service to 12-15 local non-profits.

While the winter forecast brought an added challenge to this day’s planning, our team is doing what they do best: adapting. As such, this annual Day of Service tradition will be carried out as “Days of Service.” In short, employees plan on tackling these service projects in neighboring communities in the days and weeks to come. As a show of dedication to the day’s vision, several crews began projects early with many kicking off the week of January 8.

2024 partnerships will include Advance Memphis, Alcy Ball Development Corporation, Alpha Omega Veterans Services, Baptist Children’s Village, Impact Ministries, Knowledge Quest, Memphis Athletic Ministries, Multinational Ministries, New Hope Christian Academy, Palmer Home for Children, STREETS Ministries, and the Boys and Girls Club of Grenada. New partnerships will include the Grace Place, located in Batesville, MS.

As we cast our eyes ahead to these expanded service opportunities, we thank our team members, mission partners, and project leads for their efforts in helping the communities where we live and work to thrive.
