As you probably all know, Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day -- day off for some of us!!! Yay! But I also wanted to use this space to remind everyone that Saturday, January 19th, has been designated as a National Day of Service in honor of Dr. King. It is part of President Obama's United We Serve initiative. Throughout the entire weekend, there are many opportunities to reach out to the community and give back a little!
Here are some links that you might want to check out!
To reach the United We Serve website, click here. On this site, you will find general information about the national initiative to increase community service projects and share your story.
For info on MLK day, click here. At this site, you can enter in your zipcode and find a project in your area. The site also has toolkits and information about promotion and media that can help you start your own project!
