Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is a National Day of Service to honor Dr. King's commitment and contributions to the Civil Rights Movement and social justice. Join the Center for Civic Engagement and people across the nation on as we serve our local community in Dr. King's memory.
Why We Serve
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is 'What are you doing for others?'"
The MLK Jr. Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
We were excited to partner with Midwest Food Bank for our 2021 MLK Jr. Day of Service Project! Midwest Food Bank is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to alleviating hunger and malnutrition locally and throughout the world. They also provide disaster relief.
Information will be available in December 2021 about next year's MLK Jr. Day of Service Project.
