January 20, 2014 will mark the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday. This milestone is a perfect opportunity for Americans to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community.
This year, we are hoping to partner with the local The Mission Continues platoon in the Washington, DC area to make an impact on our community.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'” Not all of us can be famous, but all of us can serve.
How are you planning to serve others on MLK Day? (Click on the link at the top for a link to local projects in your area.)
