KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Wednesday is Martin Luther King Jr.’s actual birthday, but the national holiday isn’t until Monday the 20th. ]

The City of Kalamazoo plans to mark the event this year as they have for the past few years with a day of service and they want volunteers to sign up in advance.

City Manager Jim Ritzema says they have worked with the Volunteer Center to line up a number of one-day projects at area non-profits next Monday.

A continental breakfast, a lunch and a T-shirt are provided.

They say following King’s lead this is a “holiday on, instead of a holiday off”.
