Celebrating MLK Day in Maryland

By Meagan Baco

Since 1986, Americans have been celebrating the life, work, and impact of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a federal holiday. More recently, it’s become more than a day off, but a day on — the National MLK Day of Service.

The Corporation for National & Community Service hosts a database of all the Day of Service volunteer opportunities registered through out the country. Is your schedule already booked on MLK Day? That’s okay! Thousands of organizations around the country are looking for help year round. Search today for volunteer opportunities and get connected to an organization near you.
