“Empowering and supporting servant leaders in all parts of our communities is our responsibility and privilege,” said Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. “I am encouraged by the wide range of service opportunities available to people in Hawai`i and across the country this Saturday. The President’s National Day of Service is a chance for people from every community to come together and work toward a common goal serving others.
“However, we need to do more than one day of service a year. I plan to organize and participate in regularly scheduled community service projects in every county, and look forward to working with our local communities and organizations on how best to make a difference.”
On Saturday, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard will participate in two Washington-area service projects. In the morning, she will join a bipartisan group of new Members of Congress at a local school to paint classrooms, clean up the hallways, and repair its library. In the afternoon, she will participate in a project to assemble 100,000 care kits for deployed troops and wounded warriors.
The National Day of Service was established to honor the life and legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by encouraging public service and community involvement.
