MLK Day of Service

The MLK Day of Service encourages all Americans to improve our communities through volunteer service. It helps to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, address social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a Beloved Community.  Volunteering unites Americans of all ages and backgrounds to build stronger communities. This #MLKDay of Service help meet local needs. Find volunteer opportunities, resources, videos and more on our dedicated site:


This year due to COIVD-19 we will be doing a virtual day of service through suggested acts of service that you can do in your local community and share with us. Join us and commit to giving back to your community in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

  1. Gather a bag, gloves and a mask
  2. Pick a park, trail, beach or city block near you

    2. The strangest thing you find
