A Day of Service, Not a Day Off

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is more than a day off from work for our employees. Each year, on this day, our employees complete more than 5,000 volunteer hours working at shelters, food banks, schools, and on projects that help people all around the state.

Giving back to the communities where we and our customers live and work is our way of honoring Dr. King's legacy of service.
