An Opportunity to Serve, in Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Every now and then I ask myself, ‘What is it that I would want said?’...I’d like somebody to mention that Martin Luther King Jr. tried to give his life to serving others.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
Monday, January 16th, 2023 marks the day where each year, community members come together to celebrate the life and importance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by volunteering as a service to their neighbors.
