National Day of Service
Four years ago, President Obama began the National Day of Service in
honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and legacy and to build a
better, stronger future for our country. In communities across the
country, people are already signing up to participate in service
projects on Saturday, January 19, 2013, to benefit their friends and
This year, the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative are
proud to continue our legacy of service in our own community by
joining with the National Day of Service and supporting several local
projects focused on on-going Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
We hope you will join us at one of the projects we will be
supporting to help make a meaningful difference in communities that
are still suffering from Hurricane Sandy aftermath. As we've seen
through our work, when people come together, we can make a greater
impact than any one person or group can do alone.
