Vikings Days of Service: Vikings Spring into Service

Vikings Spring into Service

Vikings Days of ServiceIn 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, designating the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a MLK Day of Service logonational day of service. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community." The MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – we have been challenged to, “Make it a day on, not a day off." SJR State will celebrate the MLK Day of Service the Friday prior to the three-day Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend.
