Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

 

The Jersey Cares Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service engages people across the state to embody Dr. King's vision and bring people of all ages and backgrounds together, strengthening their communities and building a stronger New Jersey. In 2018, 1,700 volunteers in 20 service projects across 10 counties honored Dr. King's legacy by painting murals in schools, creating no-sew fleece blankets for our homeless neighbors, serving hot meals to people who needed them, spending time with seniors, organizing donated clothes and much more.

Information for MLK Day of Service 2019 will be available in November.

“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

September 11th National Day of Service & Remembrance  

In 2017, as part of the national movement to preserve September 11th as a day of service and remembrance, Jersey Cares facilitated volunteer projects for 500 volunteers at a high school in Jersey City whose population was strongly affected by the events of 9/11. Volunteers honored those affected by the events of September 11th through projects such as creating thank-you kits for first responders, landscaping and revitalizing the school's 9/11 memorial, and painting inspirational murals in school hallways. Through these projects, volunteers worked to make our communities stronger on a day that was intended to tear them apart.
