The federal government commemorates the birthday and honors the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 21st. Consider participating in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service by pledging your monetary contribution or your time through the CFC or by volunteering directly with a charitable organization in your community. The MLK weekend is a great time to jumpstart a new service project or honor your CFC-pledged volunteer hours.
Volunteering breaks down barriers by bringing people together from various backgrounds in support of a common cause. Honor the legacy of Dr. King by working to fulfill his call to action of bringing dignity to all. By serving others in your community, you create a better world for future generations.
