Today is a day for remembrance of a great man AND an opportunity to be of service. Across the country, people are gathering to volunteer and help out in their communities. We've gathered a few ideas from Serve.gov for projects that specifically help children, from coast to coast.

New York: Ongoing opportunity to Mentor a Teenager at icouldbe.org in NY, NY

Boston: Bring Childrens Books and Gifts to Shriners Hospital in Boston through 1/20

Chicago: Ongoing opportunities to help Project YES! to complete service large service projects at local elementary schools in Chicago.

San Francisco: Help Create an Anthology of Kids Autobiographies with Streetside Stories as a volunteer copy editor in San Francisco. Now through May.

Los Angeles: Help out at College Financial Aid Workshops on January 30th throughout the LA region.

These are just a few examples - to find others in cities towns all across the country, visit serve.gov and simply plug in your zip code.

Have a wonderful Martin Luther King Jr. day!
