2019 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

MLK Day Ad 2019

The Flossmoor Community Relations Commission invites you to the 5th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service on Monday, January 21, 2019. Make this a day ON, not a day OFF. In 1994 Congress declared Dr. King’s federal holiday a National Day of Service. Over the last two decades, millions of people have given back on this day. Since 2015, the Village of Flossmoor, along with our partners, have participated in the MLK Day of Service and this year we would like to create even more community volunteer opportunities by increasing the number of volunteer sites. We are seeking local non-profits to host service projects at your location on MLK Day. You think up the project and we will bring the volunteers to you!

HERE ARE FOUR WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

Local non-profit organizations are invited to host a service project. In addition, community groups and businesses are invited to host a service project on behalf of a non-profit organization.
