JANUARY 13th - 18th

The 2022 Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 17th marks 27th anniversary of the national MLK Day of Service celebrating the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. United Way Suncoast invites our community to serve in honor of Dr. King and to make his holiday "a day on, not a day off".

As Dr. King proclaimed in his Nobel Peace Prize speech, "I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits." United Way Suncoast's MLK Day of Service volunteer projects will follow Dr. King's wisdom, focusing on food insecurity and education needs in our community, providing all the freedom to rise, because United We Rise, United We Win.

We invite community members to join one of the below opportunities throughout the Suncoast region:
