MLK Day of Service

Living the Legacy 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed in the power of service to strengthen communities and achieve common goals. Through his words and example, Dr. King challenged and empowered individuals to take action and lift up their neighbors and communities by volunteering. 

This annual event honors Dr. King’s legacy and provides an opportunity for all people to renew their own personal vows of citizenship through service to others. As a volunteer, you can assist with a variety of projects throughout Williamson County while joining in solidarity with hundreds of thousands of Americans across the country in volunteer service.

Volunteer on your own, with your family or with a group from work or school. See individual projects for age requirements.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative.
