A variety of Citywide activities commemorating Dr. King's legacy through community service.
2018: January 13th.
The City of Lancaster takes pride in the community’s ongoing commitment to volunteer service. 2017 marks the City’s tenth anniversary of engaging residents in the national United We Serve Initiative. Each year, community members and local organizations come together to donate their time, resources and skills to help build a stronger, healthier, and more unified Lancaster through their participation in the City’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Day of Service. Continuing this annual legacy, the City of Lancaster announced today that the 2017 MLK Day of Service, which officially kicks off the volunteer project season, will take place on Saturday, January 14, 2017.
The City hopes to inspire more than 1,000 selfless volunteers to complete the local projects planned for this year’s MLK Day of Service. Volunteers can now register online through the City of Lancaster’s own web-based volunteer management program, OneLINC. While the City’s official MLK Day of Service will be hosted on Saturday, January 14, 2017, utilizing OneLINC expands upon the service opportunities available to include events and projects taking place throughout the year via partnering non-profit and community service organizations.
Volunteer assignments for Lancaster’s MLK Day of Service are available on a first-come and best-matched basis. Individuals, families, and groups of all sizes are encouraged to register via OneLINC at www.onelinc.org. For more information regarding this year’s projects, visit www.cityoflancasterca.org/mlkday.
In the immortal words of Dr. King, “Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
