The Martin Luther King (MLK) Day of Service is here! January 20, 2014 isn’t just another date on your calendar. It’s an opportunity to enhance your community on this national day of service. The MLK Day of Service is part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative.
There are many ways to serve your community on MLK Day and throughout the year. Find a project near you or register to create your own service project so volunteers can find it. Use the project toolkits to plan your upcoming Day of Service event. The toolkits include options for disaster planning, environmental cleanup, fitness and more.
Additional opportunities to serve your community can be found through your local CERT and Citizen Corps Councils. Begin your Day of Service with these groups to educate people in your community about disaster preparedness and response.
Whether you plan on mentoring a young person, helping clean up a public space or aiding in disaster relief efforts, know that what you do makes a world of difference.
Do good on this day - whether it is a random act of kindness, or a plan to get involved and prepare and assist you community year round... do something meaningful.
