Volunteer New York! will host its 9th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service on Jan. 19th. Each year this community-wide action day brings together hundreds of local volunteers from throughout the lower Hudson Valley to serve as part of the National MLK Day of Service, which began in 1994 in honor of Dr. King’s legacy and passion for serving others.
Several opportunities exist for local community members, businesses and teams alike to serve at Dominican College in Orangeburg, NY on MLK Day to support seniors, youth education, animal shelters, veterans, and women and families in need. To register as an individual or as a team, visit volunteernewyork.org/MLK for specific opportunity listings, or call 914-948-4452. Please note that space is limited.
Volunteering with your colleagues or members of your office on a day of service has been shown to improve leadership, communication and team-building skills. It’s also a chance to meet new community members and be part of a shared experience, while giving back to and benefiting those who need your help.
“Local businesses and professionals are encouraged to register and join us in honoring the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” said Alisa H. Kesten, Volunteer New York! Executive Director.
