Instead of just having a day off of work and school, you can have a Day On!

Volunteer Kalamazoo is encouraging everyone to help out on their day off and help out around the community! Today is the 13th annual Martin Luther King Jr Community-wide Day of Service. It's nationally celebrated and the goal is make it a day that “reflects his life and teaching, bringing people together around the common focus of service to others and breaking down the social and economic barriers that divide our nation,” according to Volunteer Kalamazoo.
