Volunteer opportunities on MLKDay

Martin Luther King Jr. Day has been designated as a national day of service, encouraging all Americans to volunteer in their communities. Observed this Monday, MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as “a day on, not a day off.”  AmeriCorps, which has been leading this effort for the past quarter century, is collaborating with the Presidential Inaugural Committee this year on the MLK National Day of Service. While the COVID-19 pandemic might restrict how people can volunteer, the need to volunteer is as important as ever. Whether you want to participate in a food drive, clothing drive, care package drive or virtual yoga and meditation or a sew-a-thon, the opportunities are endless!  WIA encourages its members and partners to find volunteer opportunities in your area. If you are unsure how to participate, you can find ideas here.  Tell us how you plan to volunteer and send us your photos!
