Athens MLK Day of Service



Thank you to the nearly 600 volunteers who served with us at 24 community project sites on the 2024 Athens MLK Day of Service! See you next year!

The Athens MLK Day of Service is an annual celebration in support of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday and commitment to service. In 1994, Congress made the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday an official day of service. Athens, Georgia is one of the thousands of cities across the United States that decided to make this "A Day On and Not a Day Off."

The MLK Day of Service Steering Committee is made up of government organizations, private businesses, and Athens area residents. Committee members include Athens Area Chamber of Commerce, Athens-Clarke County Housing and Community Development, Athens-Clarke County Inclusion Office, Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services, Athens-Clarke County Police, Athens-Clarke County Public Information Office, Athens-Clarke County Sheriff's Office, Athens Community Council on Aging, Athens Land Trust, Clarke County School DistrictHull Firm LLCKeep Athens-Clarke County BeautifulUGA Office of Service-Learning, and United Way of Northeast Georgia.

Thank you to our 2024 sponsors: Piedmont Athens Regional, Better Communities Collaborative, Creature Comforts Brewing Co., University of Georgia Athletic Association (The Georgia Way), Athens-Clarke County Mayor Kelly Girtz, Athens-Clarke County Solid Waste Department, Kroger, and Michele Pearson Tucker

Hi, I'm wondering how I access the rest of the volunteer opportunities for the 2024 MLK Day of Service. I only see 13 here. My group is interested in volunteering at Brooklyn Cemetery or at Bear Hollow but these sites don't appear on my GivePulse page.
We are still in the process of getting details confirmed for all of our projects, but please keep an eye here on this page as we will be adding additional sites this week! -MLK Day of Service Steering Committee — Athens MLK Day Athens MLK Day on January 2, 2024
