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 2019, 1,380 volunteers in 10 service projects across 7 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.

September 11th National Day of Service & Remembrance
In 2021, as part of the national movement to preserve September 11th as a day of service and remembrance, and in honor of the 20th anniversary, Jersey Cares facilitated volunteer projects for volunteers both virtually and in-person to support communities strongly affected by the events of 9/11. Volunteers honored the day through projects such as creating thank-you cards for first responders, landscaping at a local park, and assembling you-matter kits for students in the Jersey City community. Through these projects, volunteers worked to make our communities stronger on a day that was intended to tear them apart.
