A Great Day of Service

Kaiser Permanente employees and family members celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by volunteering in the community.

In the 1960s, Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve.” Nearly 50 years later in celebration of Dr. King’s birthday, that spirit of service animated more than 1,400 Kaiser Permanente Northern California volunteers. They rolled up their sleeves to improve their communities by putting in more 8,700 volunteer hours at 23 different sites. Watch this short video (with or without sound) to see them in action.

  1. If you’ve never experienced a “Day On” with Kaiser Permanente on MLK Jr. Day, then you have to make time for this special day in the community. The feeling most people get from knowing the fruits of their labor have gone to help many in need is indescribable and incredible. For nearly a dozen years this has been a day I look forward to annually. How great a day it will be when the number of volunteers exceeds the needs within our communities. It may be a far stretch, but one has to have a dream in order for a dream to come true. The great MLK Jr. had a dream, and the fruit of his labors paid off for the entire nation … what’s stopping us?
