About MLK Jr. Day of Service
Now in its 20th year here at OneOC, community members can make their “day off” a “day on” with a Day of Service. Join us to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through meaningful service. This year we will be partnering with multiple local agencies offering volunteer opportunities that address critical community issues. Individuals, families, groups and organizations can easily participate in this national initiative in collaboration with the HandsOn Network. There is no better time to get involved and make a difference!
MLK Jr. Day of Service takes place every year during January.

OneOC Family Service Team (FST) projects are designed to provide children and their families a simple and organized way to build volunteerism into daily family life. Teams of family volunteers serve together as part of our national Days of Service, having fun for a good cause, while learning about the importance of giving of their time and talent to make a difference in our community. Projects that meet Family Service criteria will be denoted by FST in the title. Individuals can create their own Family Team (please add FST at the beginning of your title) or join a Public FST Team at any time.
