Martin Luther King, Jr. National Holiday

A day on; not a day off.



The communities of Berkley and Royal Oak will honor the life Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for the third annual Day of Service on Jan. 21, 2019 at Royal Oak High School (ROHS), 1500 Lexington Blvd.

Various onsite and offsite volunteer opportunities will be available for participants. Check back soon to sign up for those activities. 

The MLK Jr. Service Day began in 2017 as a way to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a ‘day on’ instead of ‘day off' and inspire members of the community to get involved with local organizations past January and throughout the year.
