Triad, NC -- Triad organizations are gearing up and preparing for the National Day of Service, but they need your help.
This is a program started by President Obama in 2009. The President said he believes that service should be a lifelong commitment whether it's at the school, community, city, state, or national level.
That's why the first family serves on a regular basis, and it's why they're continuing the tradition they started four years ago with a National Day of Service on January 19th, 2013. To honor the life and legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the first family is asking Americans to find an event and serve with others in their community.
