For more than 30 years, the third Monday of January has been set aside for commemorative events and community service activities nationwide to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year, Citizens will once again be partnering with museums and non-profits throughout the communities it serves to deliver enriching activities to celebrate Dr. King’s dedication to service and his passion for strengthening our communities.
“Every year we look forward to partnering with organizations to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” said Barbara Cottam, EVP and Head of Corporate Affairs at Citizens. “Working with partners in Boston, New Haven, Providence, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Detroit, we are proud to support engaging activities that demonstrate Kings’ passion for strengthening communities and provide a platform to learn and connect with one another.”
