As the nation honors Dr. Martin Luther King on Monday, January 18, volunteer or make the decision to volunteer in your community.  King routinely asked “What are you doing for others,” and Monday is the ideal day to ask yourself that question.

The federal holiday was first observed 23 years ago and in 1994 Congress designated it as a National Day of Service, inspired by King’s words, “everybody can be great because anybody can serve.”

Many people turn to Volunteer Match to find volunteer opportunities.  Visit the web site, type in your zip code, and you will be presented with a variety of organizations seeking volunteers.

As a leader in your workplace, lead by example by volunteering, and then encourage all your employees to volunteer in your local community.
