The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan. 18, 2021 is the one US national holiday that is designated as a national day of service for all Americans. Even during this global pandemic, there are opportunities to give back to your community and serve those in need.
AmeriCorps is committed to continuing this longstanding tradition by providing ideas to volunteer and help your local community this upcoming week. Discover opportunities available to you and celebrate volunteerism at a time when we need to honor the true spirit of community and togetherness now more than ever.
