Michelle Nunn, the CEO for Points of Light writes:
This weekend, more than 250,000 individuals will
honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through hands-on volunteer
projects in hundreds of communities nationwide, thanks to the combined efforts
of Points of Light
and its affiliates, Target and the Corporation for National and Community Service.
On January 19, a day designated by
President Barack Obama as a National Day of Service, 10,000 of those volunteers
will convene in Washington, D.C. for UNITE America in Service, an event
endorsed by the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
