Join President-Elect Barack Obama in Public Service Activities on Martin Luther King Day

On Monday January 19th, thousands of Americans will celebrate Martin Luther King Day by performing volunteer activities to help others in their communities. As Iranian-Americans, this is a wonderful chance to give back to our communities.

Through, you can find existing service projects to join in your neighborhood. This non-partisan event is easy to sign up for and is part of a historic call for all of us to do what we can to help, on this day and every day. Or organize your own project, as Young Persian Professionals has done with their January Food Drive at Persian grocery stores in the Bay Area.

Here is what you can do:

  1. Visit and click "find an event," enter your zip code to find service projects near you. Take your kids or invite some friends to join you. 
  2. Participate in the service project of your choice. Take pictures.
  3. Let us know you participated - and send a photo and comments to us at Tell us what activity you participated in, how many people were involved, and what the outcomes were. We will feature some of those stories in our online Force for Good at  
Let's role up our sleeves and take up the call for service! If you are interested in organizing service projects for Iranian-Americans or for Persians in other countries in an ongoing way, let us know at
Happy new year,
PARSA Community Foundation
