Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Community Events

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said,

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" 

Every year, Americans answer this call by coming together on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service to serve in their neighborhoods and communities.
