Dr. King had a dream that one day all people would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as called for in the Declaration of Independence. Dr. King called for social justice and opportunity. He asked that we bridge differences and come together in unity.
President Obama has designated Jan. 19, 2013 as a national day of service. Points of Light and Target, in partnership with Operation Gratitude, the Corporation for National and Community Service, Community Blueprint, Serve DC, HandsOn Greater DC Cares, Volunteer Fairfax and the George Washington University invite you to attend the signature national service project in Washington, D.C. linking the vision of Dr. King with inauguration events and engaging political leaders, celebrities and the community in service and dialogue.
Volunteers will pack 100,000 care kits filled with necessities for U.S. Service Members, Wounded Warriors, Veterans and First Responders. Join us to show appreciation to those who serve our country.
