MLK Day

PITCH IN. JOIN IN.
THIS MLK DAY, GO ALL IN - AND VOLUNTEER

This MLK Day, join UJA and our nonprofit partners to volunteer and make a difference in your local New York community and the greater community to which we all belong. 

There are many in person and virtual opportunities to choose from. You can pack food and winter items to keep people nourished and warm; donate blood to help save lives; call isolated seniors to bring warmth and cheer to their lives; and more. 

This MLK Day, let's live our values and live MLK's dream in the process. Together, let's build a better world. 

Are you in?

 

UJA has asked its nonprofit partners to confirm that all service projects comply with government rules, regulations, and safety guidelines. Please check individual registration pages for the most up-to-date protocols around in-person volunteer opportunities, many of which will take place outdoors or offer more limited slots.
