This coming Monday, January 19 is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, a day when Americans come together to volunteer and give back to their communities. If you’d like to contribute but don’t know how, consider joining a neighborhood or shoreline cleanup. You can make an impact on your community and help keep the ocean clean.
Groups across the country host cleanup events throughout the weekend and always need volunteers. If you can’t make it to an organized cleanup, grab a trash bag and a pair of gloves, and just focus on your neighborhood. No amount of service is too small!
Let’s hear it from you: how are you planning to spend MLK Day of Service?
