Plan to serve - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, next Monday

Martin Luther King, Jr. once said “Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?" In memory of Dr. King’s teachings, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service was established in 1994 to challenge Americans to show our respect and compassion for others by turning a work holiday into a day of service. If you are interested in participating, VolunteerMatch.org can help you to find a service project near you. Click here for more information.
