JOIN TMF VOLUNTEERS AT COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS NATIONWIDE


Operation Legacy service projects are volunteer-led efforts that fill pressing needs in communities nationwide. TMF mobilizes volunteers four times a year for focused efforts around national days of observance: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day of Service; Memorial Day; Back to School Character Days; and Veterans Day. Each year, these efforts result in about 30,000 service hours, empowering Spartans nationwide to positively impact their communities and inspire others to adopt an “If Not Me, Then Who…” spirit.

Uniting Communities Through a Movement of Service

FOCUSED SERVICE EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR


Although Operation Legacy service projects are hosted throughout the year, TMF Chapters, schools, and Spartan volunteers focus their efforts each quarter around national days of observance:

- Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January) - humanitarian efforts that reflect Dr. King’s character and spirit of service

- Memorial Day (May) - visits to fallen heroes at cemeteries nationwide through through #TheHonorProject

- Back to School Character Days (August) - events providing character education from Veteran Mentors and backpacks of supplies for youth nationwide

- Veterans Day (November) - efforts focused on recognizing and serving aging veteran populations
