Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

What will you be doing on Monday?  Sleeping in?  Or making a difference in your community?  The Governor’s Commission on Community Service and Americorps suggest Coloradans make their day off into a day of service:

Held annually on the anniversary of the Reverend Dr. King’s birthday, volunteers from across the state and nation come together to serve and find solutions to the most pressing problems facing their communities. MLK Day gives everyone the opportunity to start the year by giving back to others and making an impact.


For ideas, or to read about what Coloradans have done on past years’ MLK days of service, you can access the program’s annual report, available from our library.  Also available are reports for the 9/11 Day of Service, another service day promoted by the Commission.
