Make a Difference -- Volunteer on January 15

(January 11, 2007) In 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, designating the King Holiday as a national day of public service.  Congress wanted Americans to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s memory by becoming involved in projects that bring people from different backgrounds together to serve their communities.  Dr. King's widow, Coretta Scott King, said that "The greatest birthday gift my husband could receive is if people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds celebrated the holiday by performing individual acts of kindness through service to others."

This year, Monday, January 15, 2007, is a federal holiday commemorating and honoring the birthday of Dr. King.  On this day, which marks the 21st anniversary of this federal holiday, hundreds of thousands of other Americans across the country will celebrate this courageous leader by participating in community and national service opportunities and projects.

Many volunteer opportunities exist in Steele Creek and the Charlotte area for you to serve your community. Please consider spending some time helping others, not only on the King Holiday, but throughout the year.

You may use the Martin Luther King Day of Service website at www.mlkday.org to obtain information to volunteer to feed the homeless, donating blood, service projects at local schools, and other community programs that honor Dr. King.
