South Carolina First Steps and First Steps AmeriCorps invite you to join us in honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For the 2022 MLK Day of Service and throughout the week of January 17-21, First Steps staff, board members, AmeriCorps members, and volunteers will come together for a virtual read-aloud with preschool children across the state. Join us!

Buy a book. Choose from a wide selection of quality, hardback books for children of all ages. Thanks to our partners at Usborne Books and More, 60% of the purchase price will go directly to our campaign. Shop here.
Spread the word. MLK Service projects empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, address social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "beloved community." Join the movement by sharing this volunteer opportunity with others!
