Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is a chance to start the year off right by making an impact in your community. This year, consider honoring Dr. King’s legacy by becoming a year-round volunteer helping Wake County seniors, adults with disabilities and family caregivers.

By attending an orientation on MLK Day, you will learn about the The Center for Volunteer Caregiving, opportunities to help others in Wake County and have any questions answered. As soon as your application is complete, you will be on your way to making a difference in the lives of our most fragile population.

The orientation will be held on Monday January 15, from 9 – 11 a.m. at The Center for Volunteer Caregiving’s office located at 1150 SE Maynard Rd, Suite 210 in Cary.
Before you come to the orientation, please complete the online application today by visiting our website. When you are on your online application page, please register for the orientation. $10 is requested to cover background check and administrative costs. This fee can be paid at the training and we can make copies of your driver’s license and auto insurance.

If you cannot be a part of the training on MLK Day, you can also complete the orientation online. It takes about two hours and can be done at your own pace. The complete listing of Winter and Spring Orientations is at the end of this blog.

About MLK Jr. Day of Service
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. In Wake County, this means working to help our most fragile population feel less isolated with regular friendly visits and transportation to the doctor and other essential trips.

Please email volunteer@ctrvolcare.org if you have questions or want to register for any of the group orientations.
