The 14th Annual

Cambridge MLK DAY OF SERVICE

January 15, 2024

The 14th annual Cambridge MLK Day of Service will be held from on Monday, January 15, 2024 (2:00 pm-5:00 pm). As many of you know, we organize one of the largest single-day service events in New England. We’re proud to have become a Cambridge tradition.

We’re excited to be in person for this year’s day of service. Details will be coming soon, but you can expect many of our beloved service projects, as well as opportunities to reflect on Rev. King’s message of racial justice, equality and love.

Stay tuned for details. Sign up for our emails, and we’ll send you a notice when we have more to share.

Thank you for lending your helping hands! We look forward to seeing you soon!

"Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve.  You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.  You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."
