Martin Luther King Jr. Day - January 21, 2019
"Everybody can be great... because anyone can serve." Martin Luther King, Jr.
Why do we serve on MLK Day?
During his lifetime, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. worked tirelessly toward a dream of equality. He believed in a nation of freedom and justice for all, and encouraged all citizens to live up to the purpose and potential of America by uniting and taking action to make this country a better place to live. The Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley works with community partners to: Strengthen Communities, Empower Individuals and Build Bridges.
Each year for MLK Day, the Volunteer Center coordinates service projects for groups/teams to register to serve. In 2018, year over 100 volunteers participated in projects with 10 Lehigh Valley nonprofits!
