Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

On Monday, January 20, America celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  In addition to being a Federal holiday, Monday has also been designated by Congress as a national day of volunteer service to honor Dr. King and his vision for our Nation.  2020 marks the 25th anniversary of this day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. 

Dr. King said, “Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.”   

The national day of volunteer service is a wonderful opportunity to participate in volunteer activities.  As former President & CEO of United Way of America and Director of the Peace Corps, I know the difference that volunteers can make in communities and what a wonderful tribute it would be to the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
