Fifteen years ago, Congress passed legislation designating the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday as a national day of community service.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee is working to encourage participation in service projects nationwide on Monday, January 19, to honor the legacy of Dr. King. 

President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden and their families, joined by Americans in communities all across the country, will participate in activities dedicated to serving others in communities across the Washington, D.C. area.

Let's mark this day with service in our Communities by sharing your time and energy and volunteering for a special project. A lot of organizations in our area can use your help.

Martin Luther King would have been 80 years old this Thursday, January 15.    Serving others would be a tribute to his memory.
