MLK Day of service

Honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. by serving others, strengthening communities

MLK Day, taking place on the third Monday in January each year, is observed as a national day of service – a day on, not a day off.

At Thrivent we believe in living lives of meaning and gratitude. One way we do that is in service to others. Thrivent members and friends can honor the legacy and continue the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. through acts of service that strengthen communities.
