MLK Day of Service
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived his life serving others. Following his example, millions of Americans serve on Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. At our children’s schools, at a local shelter, or lending a hand to help our neighbors – we join Dr. King as drum majors for justice, peace and righteousness.
Points of Light, a partner of Hands on Birmingham, has a legacy rooted in our founder, President George H. W. Bush’s, belief that “any definition of a successful life must include serving others.” In 1989, President George H. W. Bush signed the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday Commission Extension Act accompanied by Mrs. Coretta Scott King, wife of Dr. King. On MLK Day, Points of Light calls together its community of change-makers to reflect on gains won during the Civil Rights Movement and to address contemporary issues facing our nation through acts of volunteer service.
