“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Jersey Cares Dr. 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.

Due to COVID-19, 2,100 volunteers will honor Dr. King's legacy through a variety of virtual projects.
