MLK Week of Service - SC First Steps

MLK Week of Service

January 20 - 24, 2025

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

For the 2025 MLK Day of Service and throughout the week of January 20-25, First Steps staff, board members, AmeriCorps members, and volunteers will come together for a statewide read-aloud and book distribution.

There are several ways to get involved:

Make a commitment to serve. Volunteer registration for the 2025 MLK Week of Service will open in late 2024. In the meantime, there are still many ways to get involved.
