Honor Dr. King’s legacy with a Day of Service

Martin Luther King MemorialLooking for a meaningful activity you can engage in on Martin Luther King Jr. Day? How about achieving greatness?

“Everyone has the power for greatness,” Dr. King said, “not for fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service.”

And opportunities to serve will abound on Jan. 19. Wherever you are, if you do an Internet search for “MLK Day of Service,” you’ll probably find several volunteer opportunities in your community.

In the Washington, D.C., area where the GEICO headquarters is located, I found many such opportunities this way. One is sponsored by City Year, a national education-focused organization rooted in the idea that young people in service have the power to transform lives, schools, and communities. Each Martin Luther King Jr. Day, City Year mobilizes its 2,800 corps members and thousands more volunteers for a day of service in communities across the nation. In D.C. this Monday, City Year volunteers will gather at Eastern High School at 8 a.m. to refurbish the building and grounds.

You’ll find lots of other opportunities, in DC and elsewhere, at Make Martin Luther King Day a day ON, not a day OFF.
