2018 MLK Day of Service & Celebration

MLK Day of Service 2018 is set for January 15, 2018!

Each year, people across the United States come together on Dr. King’s birthday to observe the only federal holiday that is designated as a National Day of Service. For the past 14 years, with the support of individuals like you, the Athens-Clarke County community has been a part of this nationwide movement.

With an average of 1,000 citizens volunteering each year, our community has truly realized the national objective of making Martin Luther King, Jr. Day not only one of celebration, but also “A Day On and Not a Day Off.”

Athens Land Trust is serving as the fiscal agent for the Athens-wide MLK Day. If you would like to make a donation, please CLICK HERE. This donation will help support the kick-off event, and the MLK Day of Service as a whole.

Stay tuned for more info on project sites, volunteer registration, and the kick-off event!

Please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Kai Wilmsen at kai@athenslandtrust.org or 706-613-0122 if you have any questions.

Join the west broad farmers market and Athens Land trust for its Day of Service Celebration following the 16th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. The celebration will include food vendors, special guests, and performances by local artists.
