25th is MLK Day of Service. Make it a day on, not a day off. January 20, 2020.Make it YOUR New Year's resolution to give back to the community!

"The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan. 20, 2020, marks the 25th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. The Corporation for National and Community service has been charged to lead this effort for the last quarter century" (AmeriCorps)

Everybody can be breat, because everyboday can serve. Quote of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
