Yesterday we celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a day when we’re encouraged to participate in acts of service in our community. “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve,” Dr. King said in 1968.
I started working for UPS in 2011 and one of the first things that caught my eye was the emphasis placed on volunteering and giving back to the community. It’s not something that is just talked about around holidays like Martin Luther King Jr. Day or Thanksgiving – it’s something that’s encouraged throughout the year.
