Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Project Grants Awarded

Recently the Maine Commission for Community Service challenged communities across Maine to develop volunteer service projects that unite community sectors in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Our challenge was met with an overwhelming response of 26 grant applications. We are happy to announce, the Maine Commission for Community Service, awarded 16 organizations $500 grants to implement Martin Luther King Day of Service Projects.
We encourage local citizens to contact a project in their community and take part in the Martin Luther King Day of Service. This special day of service is an important way for Maine’s people to experience the significance of service, volunteerism and collaboration amongst their neighbors. These service projects will not only impact their communities, but celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and his commitment to service, non-violence, and diversity.
