Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Day On, Not a Day Off

The birthday of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. is on Jan. 15; however, it is observed on the third Monday in January as a federal holiday. For 2023, Monday, Jan. 16 is recognized as a federal and county holiday.

In honor of King’s legacy, Chesterfield County, Virginia State University and HandsOn Greater Richmond (part of the Community Foundation) hosted a "Day On, Not a Day Off" of service. 

Thank you to all volunteers who joined us for MLK Day of Service 2023! Service events for MLK Day of Service 2024 will be announced in late 2023 or early January 2024.
