Social Responsibility

MLK Day of Service and Learning


We honor Dr. King’s legacy every year by joining thousands of volunteers across the city and the country in giving back.

MLK Day is a chance for us to dedicate a portion of our day to civic engagement and service. Thousands of people across the country come together to serve others and advance justice and social welfare. We are proud to provide a meaningful opportunity for you to engage every MLK Day of Service.

Dr. King’s legacy is one of service to our fellow human beings, but it is also of working towards racial equity and a more just society for People of Color.

Join us to honor and celebrate both Dr. King’s legacy on this day of civic engagement.
