In Honor of Martin Luther King Day: Resources for Being of Service

In his video announcing the 2013 National Day of Service, President Obama set aside this past Saturday as the day to roll up your sleeves and get involved in your community. If you missed that opportunity on the 19th, it's not too late. Check out volunteer resources, watch the President's short video and learn about Dr. King's legacy of service after the jump...

• Check out the National Day of Service website, where you can enter your zip code to find volunteer opportunities near you.

• At United We Serve, you can search volunteer opportunities by location and by interest.

• For a little deeper involvement, check out Volunteers for Prosperity to learn how you can be of service in America and abroad.

• At Volunteer.gov you can search for opportunities by state, agency or keyword, as well as choosing to see the most recent opportunities.

• If you're inspired to make every day a day of service, check out the Peace Corps website for information about volunteering.

• The Department of Veterans Affairs site allows you to search for VA facilities by state. You can also choose to donate funds rather than time.
