“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’”
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Each year on Martin Luther King Day, Americans come together to answer Dr. King’s question by serving others in their communities. The MLK Day of Service is part of President Obama’s national call to service and the United We Serve campaign, calling for Americans from all walks of life to join together to help solve some of our nation’s most pressing problems and participate in our nation’s recovery and renewal.

To participate, visit www.serve.gov to find a volunteer opportunity in your community and plan to spend your day off next Monday serving. You may also register your own service project so volunteers can find it and join you.

Last year, hundreds of thousands of Americans received help through the services of others on MLK Day of Service. Check out this recap from 2014:
