Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Monday, January 20, 2014

As the DC Commission on National and Community Service and the Mayor's Office on Volunteerism, Serve DC commemorates the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service each year 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.

Join Serve DC for its 2014 MLK Day Signature Service Project, "It Takes a Village."

On Monday, January 20, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., volunteers will be deployed to senior housing complexes across the District to spend time with residents and help them to create their own personal emergency preparedness plan.

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. Learn more about national MLK Day initiatives at mlkday.gov.
