Give Back to Your Community Through These Helpful Volunteer Organizations

Updated: Jan 20, 2023

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service, acting as a call to action for Americans far and wide to make a positive impact in their communities in honor of the legacy of Dr. King.

To help promote the day of service each each year, AmeriCorps has a helpful search tool that allows you to find volunteer opportunities near you. It also promotes a volunteer pledge, to help prospective volunteers commit to serving and gain quick access to volunteer opportunities.

The focus on making a comeback and making a positive impact is a great way to honor his legacy.

In the same spirit of compassion and service, I would like to present a platform that serves as a beacon of support for individuals and families in difficult health situations, especially those related to palliative care:

MyLifeChoice offers a space where people can find information, share experiences, and seek emotional support, creating a holistic approach to addressing the medical, emotional, and personal aspects of palliative care.
