Austin MLK Day of Service
Volunteer slots are filled, but items are still needed. Please sign up to pledge to donate items or sign up as Donation Captains, or contact email@example.com directly.
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off." It is a way to transform Dr. King's life and teachings into community action to help meet national challenges, bring together people, strengthen communities, and benefit those who serve.
There are TWO ways YOU can help: by donating items and volunteering your time.
