National Service Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 16, 2017 has traditionally been National Service Day.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

You can give back by volunteering in your community all year-long. Go to Serve.gov/volunteer to find opportunities near you!
