Each January we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day off school, and (for many) work. Across the country, thousands of people use this time to make a special effort to be of service in honor of the work of Dr. King. This year a new resource has been created to help connect citizens with meaningful service opportunities in their area. The new site: www.usaservice.org is a searchable database of organizations with whom you can make a difference. Even if you make service a regular part of your life, you may wish to take this day to explore a different kind of opportunity or to reflect on the meaning of your service.
Special Thanks to Karla Peterson for bringing this website to my attention!
