2023 MLK Day of Service: United We Serve

The Martin Luther King, Jr., National Day of Service is a defining moment each year when Americans across the country step up to make communities more equitable and take action to create the Beloved Community of Dr. King’s dream. While Dr. King believed the Beloved Community was possible, he acknowledged and fought for systemic change. His example is our call to action.

MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a National Day of Service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. During the last quarter-century, the MLK Day of Service has grown, and its impact increased as more Americans embraced the idea that citizenship involves taking an active role in improving communities.

Volunteer with Wilkes’ Office of Civic Engagement on Friday, January 20, from 10:00am to 2:00pm in a family food distribution at PAK. Please reach out to or if interested in joining! Weather permitting!
