Obama’s old campaign organization urges people to get out to do service to their communities this weekend, to honor the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. An e-mail from the campaign urges:
Throughout the country, Organizing for America volunteers and staff are planning service events for this Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend.
It’s a great chance to come together, spend time with friends and neighbors, and help create a more just and equal world as we honor Dr. King this weekend. I hope you can come out and take part in an event near you.
Sign up to participate in a Martin Luther King Jr. service event in your area. No experience is necessary and it’s a great way to give back.
Martin Luther King Jr. gave so much of his talent and energy to his family and community, his neighbors and friends. I hope you will continue in that grand tradition as we honor him this weekend.
Like so many of you did last year, OFA supporters are joining together in communities all across America — in food banks and shelters, in health clinics and nursing homes.
They’re coming together to remember the great legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and to give back to their communities. There are so many different and fun ways to participate in this weekend of service, I hope you find one that means something special to you.
Please sign up to participate in a service event near you:
Thank you for your service,
Organizing for America
I’ve got school projects and Scout projects already lined up; Monday, I may need something more to do, and something more service oriented.
What sort of service are you planning to celebrate the heritage and history of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?
