Martin Luther King Day is considered a National Day of Service, encouraging people to “make it a day on, not a day off”!  For years, The Volunteer Center has hosted a signature event designed to bring people from all over Guilford County together to complete service projects benefiting local nonprofit organizations and to learn about the many ways to serve throughout the year. 




We are excited to announce that the Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service will be held at the Fieldhouse at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex on Sunday, January 19 from 2pm-5pm! 

Our 2020 event will include:

  • Food Drive-  Please bring shelf-stable foods to the event!  Your donations of canned goods and other non-perishable items will help a lot of people right here in Guilford County!

  • Nonprofit Fair- visit with around 30 great area nonprofits we work with so you can learn about the different ways to serve throughout the year! 

  • On-site Service Projects- All attendees are invited to take part in fun, easy and impactful service projects that will directly benefit area nonprofit organizations.
