Make MLK Day a "Day ON" for Service
In true spirit of honoring the legacy of service that Martin Luther King, Jr. worked tirelessly to inspire, Reading Partners Staff and AmeriCorps members will be working on service projects across the country on MLK Day 2014–demonstrating our continued support and commitment to community service nationwide.
While MLK Day has been marked a national holiday and “day off.” The Corporation for National and Community Service has issued a call-to-action to use MLK Day as “a day ON” for service.
What better way to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. than to spend the day in the community, taking action, and serving to the benefit and greater good of others?
