Serving others on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 18 is one way to remember King’s achievements as a visionary and pioneer of the civil rights movement. King recognized the power of service and famously said, “Everyone can be great because everybody can serve.”
From Jan. 16 through early February, numerous Alabama Power employees will honor King’s legacy through Day of Service projects. Tequila Smith, vice president of Charitable Giving at Alabama Power, said that members of the Alabama Power Service Organization (APSO) will take part in events that allow them to volunteer safely while social distancing.
“While this year’s Day of Service may look different, I’m proud of the way our volunteers are still finding meaningful ways to give back in a safe manner,” Smith said. “Our APSO volunteers are committed to serving the communities in which we live and work. Even during a pandemic this commitment has not wavered, and we look forward to serving again in person once it is safe for all.”
