MLK Jr. Day of Service
For the past 14 years the citizens of Birmingham and the surrounding areas have come out by the thousands to give back to their community on MLK Jr. Day of Service. We're proud and you should be too! You've refurbished schools, built homes for the needy, fed the homeless, cleaned up neighborhoods and socialized with seniors-the list is endless!
This year, Hands On Birmingham will be celebrating the 14th Annual of MLK Day of Service which will be held on Monday, January 20th. We invite you to take your day off and turn it into a day ON! Help us make a huge impact in the community in just ONE day!
