Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday became a federal holiday in 1983.  It was designated as a national Day of Service by Congress in 1994, to be led by the Corporation for National and Community Service. Per their website: "The MLK Day of Service inspires hundreds of thousands of Americans to come together to serve their community... Observing the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday through service is a way to begin each year with a commitment to making your community a better place. Your service honors Dr. King's life and teachings and helps meet community challenges." Over time, the Day of Service has continued to build momentum.

Join the Riverdale community on Monday, January 20, for our MLK Day of Service supported by UJA Federation's "Time for Good", and coordinated by the Riverdale Y. Over 400 volunteers supported last year's efforts by serving meals, grappling with racism, compiling vital items for countless individuals in need, and more. Registration opens on December 12. More details can be found at HERE.

As well as the opportunity to volunteer at the Riverdale Y, we encourage you to sign up with one of the following three agencies working to address hunger: MAZON, Part of the Solution (POTS), and Rise Against Hunger
