Serve on MLK Day – January 21, 2019

The 2019 MLK Day of Service is almost here and Americans across the country are rolling up their sleeves in service. Are you ready to get out and serve?

Making time to volunteer for the 2019 MLK Day of Service is a great way to engage with your community while honoring the legacy of Dr. King. Whether you plan on grabbing a paintbrush, mentoring a young person, or helping to clean up a public space in the next few days, know that what you do makes a world of difference.

Honor Dr. King’s legacy all year.  Commit to serve in his honor.

Still looking for a way to participate? Sign up to volunteer with a project in your area. VolunteerAlamance.org is a portal that brings non-profit agencies and potential volunteers together. This website is managed by United Way of Alamance County. Kellee Hawley, Community Outreach Coordinator, is available to train non-profits on how to set up their agency page and best practices for listing needs. You can reach her by calling 336-438-2000 or at khawley@uwalamance.org.

Be sure to share your thoughts and photos from your volunteer service that day on social media and include the hashtag #MLK2019.

“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
