Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a vision of a society motivated by the ideals of nonviolence, equality, and service to one another. On Monday, January 18, 2010, we can help fulfill Dr. King’s vision by making it a day of service in our own communities.
Inspired by President Obama’s national “call to service” last year, the 2009 King Day of Service was the largest in history, with more than 1 million volunteers participating in 13,000 projects nationwide.
