Unite America in Service: January 19th 2013
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, Target, the Corporation for National and Community Service in partnership with Volunteer Fairfax 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 deployed U.S. Service Members, Wounded Warriors, Veterans and First Responders. Join us to show appreciation to those who serve our country. Volunteer Fairfax is honored to be a partner in this event.
Volunteer Fairfax is proud to recruit volunteers for this day of celebration!
