“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. This year, 3,000 volunteers will honor Dr. King's legacy by painting murals in schools, creating no-sew fleece blankets for our homeless neighbors, spending time with seniors, organizing school libraries, and more.
