Martin Luther King Jr. Day

While the birthday of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. is on Jan. 15, it is observed each year on the third Monday in January as both  a federal and county holiday.

In honor of King’s legacy, Chesterfield County, Virginia State University and HandsOn Greater Richmond (part of the Community Foundation) host a "Day On, Not a Day Off" of service. 

Thank you to all volunteers who joined us for MLK Day of Service 2022 on Monday, Jan 17! Service events for MLK Day of Service 2023 will be announced in late 2022.
