Martin Luther King Day is a federal holiday held on the third Monday of January, recognizing the life, achievements, service, and inspiration of Martin Luther King Jr., a guiding American civil rights leader.
While it is tempting to spend this day shopping the best deals, we also encourage you to look outside yourself and consider volunteering.
In our business, we see a lot of people in the crossroads of our lives (we are, after all, a storage/moving business). We often see retirees who are eager to spend more time volunteering, particularly with the extra time they have on hand.
You don’t have to be a retiree to consider volunteering. With our calendars being jam-packed, the very idea of volunteering causes stress for many of us. How do we find the time? The good news is that it is not impossible to find the time and a cause. There are huge benefits of volunteering, not only for the community and organization but also for the individual who is donating their time.
There is a service that matches the town you live in with service opportunities available. It is called Volunteer Match and we encourage our customers to consider it on this day of service.
