Honor Dr. King by Giving Back

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed because everyone can serve, everyone can be great. His dream included a vision of people of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds serving others around the world and in doing so, enhancing the quality of life for us all. This is why honoring Dr. King through performing acts of service, kindness, and volunteerism helps keep his dream vibrant, strong, and alive.

On the third Monday in January, we celebrate Dr. King’s life, legacy, and contributions to our nation. There is no greater way for Americans to honor him than by including volunteerism and public service into their daily lives.

Dr. King once observed, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” We encourage all Cleary students, staff, faculty, and alumni to put Dr. King’s teachings into action by volunteering in your communities. Through volunteerism, we can all make a contribution that helps answer his question not only on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but every day. By empowering people, building bridges, and strengthening communities, we can make a difference.

Here are just some of the many opportunities to lend a helping hand.
