 "Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't even have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve... You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love..."  ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Volunteering as a family has countless educational benefits, not the least of which is character development. It's often said that kids who volunteer are less likely to engage in risky behavior, are more likely to feel connected to their communities, and tend to do better in school.

What better day to do community service as a family than Martin Luther King Day? The service theme for this year's Martin Luther King day is "Make it a day on, not a day off."   Check out the Martin Luther King Day official website to get the details and some great community service project ideas. To get your child(ren) excited about a project or to commemorate the day, be sure to print out these MLK day worksheets

Have a community service project in the works for you family?

We'd love to hear about it!
