Monday, January 21st, marks the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday and provides an opportunity for Americans to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service. The MLK Day of Service aims to transform his teachings into community action. This day of service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, and creates solutions to social problems.
Each community has its own obstacles to address. Whether it is health disparities, inadequate access to healthy food, or unsafe playgrounds for children, working together can help solve these community problems. To help bring the community together, on a service day or any other day, strategic partnerships are important. Below are some ideas for increasing community involvement.
How is your community working together to solve problems and benefit the health of residents? Anyone can be involved and take action. Share your plans with us here!
