Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
As the DC Commission on National and Community Service and the Mayor's Office on Volunteerism, each year Serve DC commemorates the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service by supporting and promoting service and civic engagement across the city. Serve DC connects residents with volunteer opportunities and community-based organizations with resources and volunteers and tracks the number and locations of volunteers and service projects citywide.
Each year, Americans across the country come together on the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday to honor Dr. King's life and legacy by serving their communities. The MLK Day of Service is part of United We Serve, the President's national service initiative, which calls on Americans to work together to solve our most pressing problems.
