A Day On, Not A Day Off
Kaiser Permanente Honors the Dream through Service and Volunteerism
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ ” It was with this legacy in mind that Kaiser Permanente employees and physicians honored Dr. King on Jan. 17 during our seventh annual MLK Day of Volunteerism — A Day On, Not a Day Off.
Every year since 2005, Kaiser Permanente has committed time, resources and talent to support a variety of volunteer projects throughout each of its eight regions, along with its national functions, in commemoration of Dr. King. Volunteer efforts ranged from city cleanup and school refurbishing to homeless assistance, food bank sorting and packing, and clinical checkups.
Here’s a snapshot of Kaiser Permanente’s wide-ranging participation in the Day of Volunteerism.
