Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said,

“Life’s most urgent question is: what are you doing for others?”

Each year, the University of Washington and United Way of King County work together to organize students and community members throughout Seattle to join people across the country in an effort to answer that question with service.
