MLK Day of Service

Martin Luther King Day of Service logo

Since 1995, the annual observance of Martin Luther King's birthday has been a National Day of Service.

Promoted as "A Day 'On' not A Day Off," it is an important time for Mainers and all Americans to take action in response to life's most persistent and urgent question: 'What are you doing for others?"

Each year Volunteer Maine facilitates community service projects focused on promoting economic opportunity, health, and social justice. Some years Volunteer Maine is able to provide funding - some years Volunteer Maine is an instigator and organizer. 

Every year, Volunteer Maine is a partner with the Corporation for National and Community Service in providing resources to community service groups.
