Presidential Inaugural Committee MLK Day of Service Host Form

Thank you for your interest in partnering with the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) for the National Day of Service on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Health and Safety Agreement:

Given the impact of COVID-19 across the country, service organizations and volunteer leaders should strive to host virtual opportunities for volunteers to serve impactfully and safely. In-person service activities should be limited in scope and capacity, and follow CDC, state, and local guidelines.

If you would like to host a service event with an in-person component, please consider hosting a drive thru or contactless service event in which a majority of participants can stay in their car or have limited contact with others.

We all have a personal responsibility to slow the spread of the pandemic and eliminate the virus as quickly as possible. All events hosted in partnership with the PIC on the National Day of Service must comply with the following guidelines as well as the most up-to-date CDC and local health and safety guidance. Those guidelines could include indoor and outdoor gathering and capacity limits, social distancing, and travel restrictions. More guidance from the CDC can be found here.
