Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "Everybody can be great because everybody can serve." To honor his words of inspiration and encouragement, the Michigan Community Service Commission (MCSC) asks you to mark January 15, 2018 on your calendar for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.

The MLK Day of Service was initiated by Congress in 1994 and has been developed beyond a federal holiday honoring Dr. King into a national day of community service. In honor of this special day, thousands of service projects will be planned across the country grounded in Dr. King's teachings of nonviolence and social justice. 

The Michigan Community Service Commission regularly offers MLK Day grants for service projects through partner agencies. MCSC will support 27 volunteer projects across the state in 2018.
