CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Appalachian League executives participated in the 25th annual MLK Day of Service, volunteering in 11 communities across North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Tabbed as "a day on, not a day off" to celebrate the life and legacy of the Civil Rights leader, MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.

Across the League, executives volunteered with food pantries, churches, Boys and Girls Clubs, the Salvation Army, YMCAs, and educational centers assisting with preparing meals, painting, and day care activities.
"We appreciate continued opportunities to give back to our communities and are happy to have joined many across the country in celebrating MLK Day of Service," said Appalachian League President Dan Moushon.
