National Day of Service is Saturday. How to volunteer in Alaska?

Craig MedredAlaska Dispatch

National Day of Service will take place on Saturday all around the country as a way to honor the life and legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through volunteer work, outreach and community service. Plenty of opportunities exist out there, in addition to the following, for Alaskans to lend a helping hand to those in need:

In Anchorage

In the Mat-Su Valley

In Fairbanks

For other areas around the state check in with the National Day of Service website and find an event or project near you and, if you can't find one, you can always start one.
