Much like other holidays, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day will have a different dynamic with the pandemic forcing the cancellations of parades, rallies and other events usually held each year to celebrate the occasion.

But there are still ways to honor the legacy of King, even if they’re limited by the shutdowns and requests to stay at home.

Here are some ways you can still serve on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, virtually.


Volunteer

Think you can’t volunteer and make the lives of others better from home? Think again.

Some senior centers have programs and opportunities in which you can teach virtual classes in areas of interest or hobbies such as cooking, exercise or history.

It’s a chance to share meaningful stories and lessons with seniors who can’t be visited in-person.
