Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerberg volunteers in Oak Cliff


Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerberg spent Martin Luther King Day with Dallas natives doing community service in Oak Cliff, Texas. For Oakcliff is an organization that “improves community engagement by bringing together residents of the Dallas community, connecting them directly with high-demand resources, and creating opportunities for deeper ongoing community organizing and development.”

The first state I’m visiting this year is Texas. I’m here in Dallas for work, but I’m also taking time to meet members of our Texas community over the next few days as part of my Year of Travel challenge.

Today I helped plant a garden with members of the Oak Cliff community in Dallas as part of their Day of Service honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Oak Cliff is a food desert, so the garden we worked on is going to be a source of fresh fruits and vegetables for the community.

Thanks to Taylor Toynes for inviting me, and to all the members of the community for sharing their stories. Service events like this are a great reflection of Dr. King’s spirit and his life’s work. And thanks to all of you who participated in a Day of Service in your community.

After a day of service with community organization For Oakcliff, Mark Zuckerberg also stopped by The Dallas Police Department.
