Boston Cares: MLK Day Virtual Volunteering Opportunities
Since 2006, Boston Cares has organized A Day ON, Not a Day OFF projects for MLK Day that have collectively engaged nearly 7,000 individuals of all ages from Bostonís neighborhoods and surrounding communities.
Continuing our tradition of honoring Dr. King's legacy through service in 2022, Boston Cares will host a Community Weekend of virtual opportunities focused on ways to serve and improve our community through educational opportunities, discussions about community issues, volunteer trainings, and remote service.
