This year, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is on January 18th. We encourage you to take this day as an opportunity to do something for yourself and for those around you.
Every year, the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service brings students, teachers, parents, mentors, and community members together for a fun and fulfilling day of community service. Service can mean anything that betters the state of your community. Plant a tree. Clean up a park. Help out at a soup kitchen. Host a clothing drive. Paint a mural. Any of these activities will make a difference in your life and the lives of the people you care about.
