From the website NationalService.gov:
On MLK Day, Americans across the country come together for a day of service, picking up the baton handed to us by past generations and carrying forward their efforts. As one people, we show that when ordinary citizens come together to participate in the democracy we love, justice will not be denied.
So make the commitment to serve you community throughout the year - and make MLK Day a day on, not a day off.
Let's get out there and do some service today!
