It is all about embracing the life, legacy, and honoring Dr. King through service. Coretta Scott King stated some many years ago, before she passed away, "the very best way to honor DR. MLK, JR. was through service". This year our marquis event is at the Liberty Bible Baptist Church. We need resources, and volunteers on MLK Day (this Monday) and through the Season of Service ending April 4th.

"DOS" and the 9/11 National Day of Service & Remembrance. These are the only two National Days of Service.
