We are closed in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 18, 2021

Posted on by Fox Communities

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on January 18, 2021, marks the 26th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans the volunteer to improve their communities. By observing MLK Day as a national day of service, we are encouraging our staff to take January 18 to serve their community.

Why serve on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?
Dr. King recognized the power of service. He famously said, “Everyone can be great because everybody can serve.” Observing the day as a federal holiday through service is a way to begin each year with a commitment to making your community a better place. Your service honors Dr. King’s life and teachings and helps meet community challenges. Service also brings people together of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. MLK Day encourages all types of service, particularly projects that have a lasting impact and connect participants to ongoing service. The most successful projects connect to the life and teaching of Dr. King, meet a pressing community need and includes time to reflect on his teachings.

How can you serve on MLK Day?
We invite you to visit the following websites to find an opportunity in your community:
