The 2021 MLK Day of Service is almost here – and Americans across the country are rolling up their sleeves in service. Are you ready to get out (or even stay in!) and serve?
Making time to volunteer for the 2021 MLK Day of Service is a great way to engage with your community while honoring the legacy of Dr. King. Volunteer service is a powerful tool that builds strong communities and it is needed now more than ever.
COVID-19 has had impact on all of our lives, but there are many ways to still serve, it may just look a little different. Whether you plan on mentoring a young person, delivering meals, or helping clean up a public space in the next few days, know that what you do makes a world of difference.
Still looking for ways to participate?
- Honor Dr. King’s legacy all year. Use King Day to find an organization you’re passionate about and make a commitment to serve with them year-round.
- Organize your family and friends to engage to do your own service project – safely. Clean up a nearby park or deliver care packages to isolated neighbors.
- Make a donation to a local organization in need.
Be sure to share your thoughts and photos from your volunteer service that day:
