Random Acts is calling on you to participate by “Serving Hope” in the form of helping people experiencing food insecurity across the globe by taking this day of service to feed others, or pledge your future time to help.
In addition to being a national holiday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day—celebrated this year on Monday, January 18, 2021, in the United States—is also a national “Day of Service.” Americans are encouraged to observe the day by participating in service to their local communities. It is in this spirit that we invite you to join us in partnership with the Presidential Inauguration Committee to spend the day in service to others.
There are several ways you can participate:
*Providing meals to others Monday to help us reach 10,000 meals served.
*Pledging to safely (masked/socially distanced) spend time volunteering at food banks, urban farms, or other places providing meals to the underserved.
*Making a donation to the Serving Hope program, which will go toward feeding disadvantaged communities, educating people on nutrition, and building resources to help them become self-sufficient in sourcing food.
Check out social media to see how others are participating by using the hashtag #RAServingHope. You can also submit your served or pledged hours and meals HERE, to be counted as part of the 10,000 meals served.
Random Acts feels it is important to acknowledge the significance of the day. This holiday celebrates the life of Dr. King, a civil rights icon and preacher who dedicated his life to the philosophy of nonviolent civil disobedience centered on love.
