MLK Jr Day of Service
Jan 16 – Jan 17 all-day

DAY ON, NOT A DAY OFF!

The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is a way to transform Dr. King’s life and teachings into community service that helps empower and strengthen local communities. We provide tools and resources for organizations and individuals to become engaged in service activities to honor Martin Luther King Jr. on the federal holiday, including grants to organizations to support volunteer projects across a state or throughout a multi-state area. Please see the opportunities below to see how you can get involved.

Visit the MLK Day of Service website for more information on how you can get involved and make the King Day of Service, “A Day On, Not a Day Off!”

WHAT IS THE MLK DAY OF SERVICE?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.
