Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

New York Cares Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service Banner

This is a National Day of Service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In celebration, New York Cares mobilizes volunteers over an array of projects to support their communities! Projects will include painting murals, supporting student and parent financial literacy workshops, interviewing local senior citizens, and helping create hand-made items for community donations.

To participate in the day, look for volunteer opportunities in late-November through December. It's a popular occasion to volunteer, so we recommend signing up as early as possible.
