Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service 2014
"A Day ON, Not a Day OFF"
January 20, 2014
The Massachusetts Service Alliance is excited to announce our 2014 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service Grantees! This January, our 13 MLK grantees will recruit and support thousands of volunteers across all regions of the Commonwealth in efforts to lift up their neighbors and strengthen the social fabric of the community. Volunteers will have the opportunity to prepare and package meals for low-income families, remove invasive species in environmental sanctuaries, build beds and lap desks for homeless children, and spruce up inner city school buildings. Please check back in early January to find out how to participate in a project in your area!
Congratulations to our 2014 MLK Day Grantees!

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service mini-grants are designed to help develop opportunities for people across the Commonwealth to engage in volunteerism and service during the week of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday (January 20, 2014). The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community.
Initiated by Congress in 1994, the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is a nationwide effort to transform the federal holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. into a day of community service in order to help solve our nation’s critical issues. The Martin Luther King Jr. 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.
