MLK Day of Service – Jan. 20, 2020

Every year, people across the United States come together on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for a day of national service and dialogue to honor the memory of Dr. King. Join us for a community-wide day of service and participate in projects and activities to reflect on Dr. King’s legacy.

There will be an assortment of projects available at various times and locations. Volunteer as an individual or gather a group of coworkers, friends, family, or neighbors and sign up for a group project! Celebrate MLK Day as a day ON, rather than a day off, and make a difference in your community.
