Kick off the New Year with a day of service the whole family can enjoy!
Each year, Hands On Charlotte honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by organizing service projects for hundreds of volunteers around the holiday that bears his name. These projects not only deliver valuable assistance to nonprofit organizations, schools and other service providers, but also allow participants to kick off the New Year by reflecting on the meaning of Dr. King’s life of service.
