Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
January 21, 2019

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?”
Dr. King devoted his life to advancing equality, social justice, and economic opportunity for all. He challenged us to build a more perfect union and taught us that everyone has a role to play. 

On Monday, January 21, 2019, we will join together to honor Dr. King's life and teaching at the Montgomery County MLK Day of Service from 1-3pm at the Bethesda North Marriott Conference Center. 

The Volunteer Center will host service projects benefitting area nonprofits, educational sessions, and information tables for individuals, families and groups. Everyone can make a positive impact in our community by making sure MLK Day of Service 2019 is “a day on, not a day off!”
