The City of Palmdale has announced its “Season of Service” events for 2020, as part of the City’s participation in the “National Day of Service” in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“Join your friends, family and neighbors and make a difference by being a part of the City’s 7th annual Season of Service,” said Community Programs Supervisor Trish Jones. “There are many opportunities to volunteer your time, learn about the community and give back in areas that are meaningful to you.”
