The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service and Remembrance is just five weeks away, on Jan. 20, 2014. Make plans today to volunteer in your community, or to host or attend America’s Sunday Suppers, gatherings designed to bring people together to share a meal, talk about critical issues and discuss ways people can unite to meet urgent local needs.
Visit Points of Light on Facebook to find a volunteer opportunity near you, download a project toolkit, or pledge to host an America’s Sunday Supper in your neighborhood.
