There's no better way to kick off the new year than by giving back to the community.
You can now sign up to volunteer for Johns Hopkins' third annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, which takes place Friday, Jan. 24, at various locations in Baltimore; Washington; Howard County, Maryland; and St. Petersburg, Florida.
Consider giving a few hours of your time to support one of nearly 40 community organizations with projects such as painting classrooms, fixing and delivering food to those in need, and painting murals.
Another great way to participate in the Day of Service is by donating new or lightly used men's, women's, or children's clothing to one of several clothing drives being held that day. Learn more here about the clothing drives and items that will be accepted.
You also can sign up to volunteer the following day at the inaugural Johns Hopkins Martin Luther King Jr. Health Fair in Baltimore. The event, which is expected to be annual, is free for the community and will include health screenings as well as resources for workforce development, employment, housing, and more. Download a flyer for more information and to spread the word.
Help model Dr. King's life of service leadership by participating in these events and making a difference in our communities.
