Martin Luther King, Jr. Day


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

Join us on Monday, January 15 in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for A Day of Justice, Equality and Service to Others. Volunteer your time to improve our community!

For over 20 years, Martin Luther King, Jr. - A Day of Justice, Equality and Service to Others, encourages individuals to volunteer their time to improve their communities. The spirit of community service is a rallying point to stitch together differences. Giving back and strengthening the places where we live, work and play is something we all can agree on.
