Serve your community on "Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service"

Wyomingites looking for ways to serve their communities on Jan. 19's Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service can go to . If you don’t see anything there that piques your interest, or if there’s nothing listed in your home town, you’re invited to create your own community service project.

According to the web site:

The King Day of Service is a way to transform Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and teachings into community service that helps solve social problems. That service may meet a tangible need, such as fixing up a school or senior center, or it may meet a need of the spirit, such as building a sense of community or mutual responsibility. On this day, Americans of every age and background celebrate Dr. King through service projects that strengthen communities, empower individuals and bridge barriers.
