MLK Day of Service: Who Will You Help This Year?

Each year, on the third Monday in January, MLK Day of Service is observed as a “day on, not a day off.” MLK Day of Service is intended to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved Community.”  

This time last year, we held our first company-wide day of service activity as our team and family members partnered with the Philadelphia nonprofit ACHIEVEability.

As we look at this year, things are obviously very different. To mark the day in the manner in which it was intended—A Day of Service—we’re joining millions of others as we honor Martin Luther King Jr and giving back. It’s in these unprecedented times community service is needed the most.  

To do this safely, we have encouraged our team to individually participate in a service project of their choice—done safely while social distancing. We have started a list of service opportunities for the team to consider. This list is not exhaustive and we encouraged the team to investigate their own options. We thought we would share this list with others looking to do the same.

We hope you will join us on making this a day on … not a day off.
