About Jersey Cares 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. Last year, 1,300 volunteers in 25 service projects across 12 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.
Registration information for the 2018 Jersey Cares MLK Day of Service will be available in December 2017. Please contact Jennifer Lewellen to learn more. 973-533-1993.
