Martin Luther King Day of Service Opportunity

by Jennifer Booz, Chief Diversity Officer  |   

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a federal and state holiday recognizing the birthday of MLK. It is the only federal holiday designated a national day of service, denoted as a “day on, not a day off.”

The MLK Day of Service encourages all Americans to improve our communities through volunteer service. It helps to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, address social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a Beloved Community.

There is a myriad of ways you can provide service to your community on Monday. In Anchorage, if you are looking for a way to serve, the NAACP Anchorage Branch and the Jack and Jill Anchorage Chapter are hosting the Souper Bowl of Caring, a drive-through canned/non-perishable food drive to address food insecurity in our city.

For more information on MLK or the MLK Day of Service, please contact Jennifer Booz, Chief Diversity Officer.

"Everybody can be great ... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."
