MLK Day Challenge

Due to COVID-19 - Format for 15th Annual MLK Day Challenge - January 18th 2021 has yet to be determined.  Check back on Novemb

The purpose of the Challenge is to encourage Burlington County residents to join hundreds of thousands Americans across the country in remembering and memorializing Dr. King by participating in service projects in their communities.  Together, we will honor King's legacy of tolerance, peace, and equality by meeting community needs and making the holiday a day of community service.  Thereby making MLK Day - A Day On, Not a Day Off.

In recognition of that spirit, Congress in 1994 passed the King Holiday and Service Act.  Since then, the Corporation for National and Community Service, in collaboration with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, has taken the lead in helping transform the King Holiday into a day of service to meet community needs.  www.mlkday.org
