Day of service and call to volunteer

“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love” 

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Civic leaders, from President Obama on down, are encouraging a day of service on this national holiday; Martin Luther King Day.  Minnesota's governor, Mark Dayton, has challenged all citizens to volunteer throughout the year; “I ask every adult Minnesotan, who is physically able, to volunteer a part of one day, every month, at a school, hospital, or social service agency.”

Here in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area a clearinghouse for volunteer opportunities is available though Hands on Twin Cities.
Want to be great... volunteer!
