Thank you for serving!

Your response to our virtual week of service in honor of Dr. King was tremendous! With more than 1,500 MLK Day of Service volunteer signups and thousands upon thousands of dog toys, fleece blankets, kind letters, get well cards, and more completed and delivered, you proved that our community values social action, even when we're maintaining our social distance.

Student Service Learning Hours

If you delivered projects to the Volunteer Center's offices in Germantown during the designated drop-off period and provided your contact information on the project submission form, you should receive an email with your SSL verification by the end of February. 



About Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

Every year, residents throughout our county honor the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by serving our community on MLK Day, the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service.

In 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Montgomery County Volunteer Center was not able to hold our usual large-scale volunteer gathering. Instead, along with our partners— Seneca Creek Community Church; City of Rockville; Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Montgomery County ChapterZeta Phi Beta Sorority, Eta Pi Zeta Chapter; and Journey's Crossing— we created a week-long service event incorporating a variety of virtual, at-home, and socially distanced volunteer activities suitable for all ages.
