“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve”
The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday celebrates the civil rights leader’s life and legacy with a day of service. 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 to volunteer to improve their communities.
Let's never forget what we're capable of doing together.
September 11th is Patriot Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance. On this day Americans across the country are called to volunteer in their local communities in tribute to the individuals lost and injured in the attacks, first responders, and the many who have risen in service to defend freedom.
