Martin Luther King Jr. Day is not the “first day off” in January — but rather a “day on”.
In 1994 Congress designated that the third Monday in January — Martin Luther King Jr. Day — be a day of service. Americans are urged to give back to the community by volunteering, creating their own volunteer project or mobilizing others to join them in their service.
How are you spending your “day on”? We know that many of you may be working today, as the needs of the community don’t pause, but for those who are able, we want to see what you, your friends, colleagues and family members are doing on your “day on” to serve the community. Be sure to share your stories with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We love hearing stories and seeing photos of Caring Force members caring for their communities.
Don’t have a plan for your day on yet? Not to worry — our friends at Massachusetts Service Alliance have put together a list of registered Day of Service events here in Massachusetts. Choose from one of these exciting opportunities and give back today!
Whether you are mobilizing a large group or going by yourself to make some new friends while serving the community, we want to hear about it!
Can’t wait to see what you decide to do, and the impact you make on your day of service. As Dr. King said: “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve.”Back to All Blog Posts
