Just as they do every year on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Kaiser Permanente employees across the country honored Dr. King's commitment to community service by rolling up their sleeves and volunteering. Thousands of Kaiser Permanente employees, physicians, and health care professionals made an impact across the U.S. assisting the underserved and giving back to local neighborhoods and communities.
”Everybody can be great ... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”– Martin Luther King Jr.
Partnering with a variety of outreach organizations, Kaiser Permanente volunteers impacted thousands of lives. Some gave their time to local crisis centers, some pitched in at women and children centers; others partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help provide homes and shelter while others improved local schools or built sustainability gardens for local communities. The list — and the giving — goes on.
