MLK Day of Service is a federal holiday observed as a national day of service. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to issues we face everyday in our communities.
On Monday, January 16, YMCAs throughout the city will host service events to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. We invite you to join us, so we can make our community stronger and a better place for all.
