MLK Day of Service


Taking place each third Monday in January, the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service — a “day on, not a day off.” The day celebrates the life and legacy of the Civil Rights leader and exists to move the nation closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved Community” by encouraging all Americans to take the time to volunteer and invest in their community.
