MLK Week of Service at South Carolina First Steps - SC First Steps

MLK Week of Service at South Carolina First Steps

January 16 - 20, 2023

Share the gift of reading with our state's youngest learners.

For the 2023 MLK Day of Service and throughout the week of January 16-20, First Steps staff, board members, AmeriCorps members, and volunteers will come together for a statewide read-aloud and book distribution.


Sign up to be a reader. All read-alouds will be held during the week of January 16-20, from 10-10:30 AM or 10:30-11 AM. Volunteer registration will open in October and orientations will be held in early January.

Donate. Your gift will help send every child in a participating classroom home with a brand-new book of their own. Our partners at Usborne Books & More will match 60% of every contribution, extending your generosity even further. Donate 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!
