Monday, January 19th is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Celebrated on the third Monday of January, MLK Day is a time when the nation pauses to remember Dr. King’s life and legacy by making this a day of community service, “a day on, not a day off.”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”
Each year on MLK Day, Americans across the country come together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. MLK Day is a chance to make an impact in your community.
What are you doing to make a difference on MLK Day?
Habitat for Humanity of Wake County will be completing three home preservation projects and two raised gardens in the Long Acres/Apollo Heights neighborhoods. These events are part of our Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative. NRI has partnered with Long Acres and Apollo Heights to foster and engage the residence and other significant stakeholders in the community to develop a common plan of recovery and vision for the future.
Volunteer with Habitat Wake for MLK Day of Service.
