The Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Volunteers for the YMCA

Honoring the Life and Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Through his Words

Monday, January 16th is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a National Day of Service, and an opportunity to encourage volunteerism and celebrate giving back in your community. We’re honoring the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. today by lifting up his words of wisdom. We encourage everyone to take part in #MLKDayofService at a local nonprofit, like the Keene Family YMCA, to continue to honor his words.        

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
