Every January, thousands of Americans come together to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through service.
How You Can Serve
On Monday, January 18th, The Volunteer Center of Greensboro will be hosting several service projects at Four Seasons Town Centre, benefiting local nonprofits. There will also be a Nonprofit Fair to learn how to get involved in your community, a kid’s area, community art projects and performances from Guilford County School students, a scavenger hunt and raffle.
Did You Know?
In 1994, Congress designated Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service, appointing the Corporation of National and Community Service (CNCS) to lead the effort. MLK Day of Service is every third Monday in January.
Dr. King had a vision of creating a “Beloved Community” — a community of people with different backgrounds, recognizing that we are all connected and that our own well-being is linked to the well-being of others.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is an opportunity for individuals to strengthen their community and break barriers, moving us closer to a “Beloved Community.”
How will you make it “a day on, not a day off?”
