How Will You Celebrate the National Day of Service?

Monday is Martin Luther King Day. Many schools and places of business close for this federal holiday to honor the memory and accomplishments of Dr. King. Rather than spend the day on frivolous activities, Congress wants you to put this day off to good use by participating in a community service project. In fact, there are several government sponsored sites dedicated to encouraging the public to volunteer on Monday including one by the Corporation for National and Community Service and one created in response to President-elect Obama’s call to action. Charities featured on Charity Navigator, including Hands On Network and Volunteers of America, also list volunteer opportunities on their sites. And our Guide To Volunteering offers lots of advice if you are new to giving your time.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
