Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” In recognition of Dr. King’s legacy of service to all, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service in 1994. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a “day on, not a day off.” The best way to honor Dr. King is through service and volunteering in our communities. 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.
