Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Third Monday in January

Community Center Gymnasium | 605 S. Duke St. 

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off." This Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community. The Crispus Attucks Association is proud to participate in this event and provide service opportunities to unite individuals and families in bettering the York community.

The Crispus Attucks Association Day of Service starts with breakfast and a program, and is followed by community service activities. Interested participants can pre-register for the event and chose their desired service activity.

Registration is NOW OPEN for the 2019 MLK Day of Service. Volunteers can pre-register here to ensure they can participate in their preferred project. The full list of volunteer opportunities can be found here.
