Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service -January 16th
In recognition of Dr. King's incredible legacy of service to all, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service in 1994 and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort.
Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service - a "day on, not a day off."
Join Volunteer Kalamazoo, a program of Gryphon Place and the City of Kalamazoo in this annual day of service, January 16, 2017.
This event will kick-off at Kalamazoo City Hall at 8am with a continental breakfast and volunteer check-in, with service beginning at sites at 9am. Lunch will be delivered to sites around noon. In the afternoon, join others for a march that starts at 3:30pm from Kanley Chapel on WMU's campus to MLK Park in downtown Kalamazoo that. Enjoy refreshments and slideshow highlights at the Radisson Hotel downtown following the march.
