MLK Day of Service, January 19th ,2015

This January 19, honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by joining a community of volunteers, ready to provide vital people-power to organizations that support King County’s most vulnerable populations. Each year the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service inspires more than 1,000 volunteers to donate their time to nonprofit organizations for day-long service projects that make a difference for months to come.

Join UW students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends in this annual day of service by building a team as aproject leader or by registering individually for a public project. Project leaders will have the ability to design their service experience by selecting the project that most draws their interest and by building a personal team of friends and partners. If you are interested in signing up for a service project as an individual, keep in mind, there will be more options as we get closer to the day of the event.

Also, don’t forget to join us for a celebratory kick-off. Come together with other volunteers and community members in recognizing the service and activism the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has inspired on:
