Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve.” Volunteers across Chicago have celebrated Dr. King’s legacy this January with Chicago Cares – working to transform and uplift the city. Some of the highlights so far include:

Thorp Elementary School parent Valerie volunteers at Saturday school. She stuck around with her daughter to touch up some lockers with extra paint leftover from another painting project.

There are still MLK Special projects open to volunteers, so sign up today! By serving with us, you’re continuing the work of Dr. King, honoring his legacy and inspiring others.

As we honor Dr. King this month, we hope you’ll reflect on your commitment to service and where it can go from here. How will you take the lessons from your service experience with you? How will you make your own community stronger? Let us know by using the hashtag #MyChi in social media.
