Prince Georgians Encouraged to Safely Engage in Volunteer or Virtual Dr. King Day Community Activities - January 17
The Prince George’s County Council encourages residents to safely engage in volunteer or virtual community events, on Dr. Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 17, 2022, “The MLK Day of Service.”
In honor of Dr. King’s enduring legacy of service and recognizing the holiday as “a day on, not a day off,” the Council joins the national call for an ongoing commitment to community service and engagement.
Prince George’s County Council Chair Calvin S. Hawkins, II says the MLK Day of Service is a wonderful opportunity to support and uplift fellow Prince Georgians, especially during these challenging times.
“As Prince Georgians serve one another in observance of this day, it is a great opportunity to recommit to achieving Dr. King’s global vision for a ‘Beloved Community,” embracing justice, equality and love for one another. Many of us are struggling under the weight of this ongoing pandemic. While COVID-19 challenges us, there are safe options to consider for honoring Dr. King’s legacy and strengthening our commitment to service.”
