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 2024, over 800 volunteers honored Dr. King's legacy in projects designed to support a variety of impact areas for community organizations across the state.

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.

Our September 11th Day of Service will next take place in 2026 for the 25th Anniversary.
