 What is the Martin Luther King Day of Service?

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said,

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is:  “What are you doing for others?”

2013 Day Of Service

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday in January to serve their neighbors and communities.

In October 2012, The City Council of Morristown, Tennessee and the Hamblen County Commission both declared January 21, 2013 to be a regional day of service.

Visit the national Martin Luther King Day of Service website for more information.


You can make this year a year of hope and good will by finding a need in the community and by helping others address that need.

The day begins at 7:30 am with a community celebration breakfast.  Our vision is to follow this gathering with acts of service performed all over our area by civic groups, clubs, houses of worship and schools.  Groups are invited to determine their own service projects or contact one of the local human service agencies identified here.

You will find a 2014 Project Kit to help guide you in planning.
