What is the Day of Service?
Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service honors the memory of Dr. King by serving our community just as Dr. King lived his life serving others. Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service takes places on the third Monday of every January, this year being January 18th.
Millions of Americans serve on the Day of Service whether that be at schools, local shelters, or lending a hand to help our neighbors. Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service challenges Americans to take initiative and give back to their communities and volunteer to service in honor of Dr. King.
