Martin Luther King Day of Service


MLK Day of Service logoSince 1995, the annual observance of Martin Luther King's birthday has been a National Day of Service.

Promoted as "A Day 'On' not A Day Off," it is an important time for Mainers and all Americans to take action in response to life's most persistent and urgent question: 'What are you doing for others?"

Each year the Maine Commission for Community Service facilitates community service projects focused on promoting economic opportunity, health, and social justice. Some years MCCS is able to provide funding - some years MCCS is an instigator and organizer. 

Every year, MCCS is a partner with the Corporation for National and Community Service in providing resources to community service groups.
