Honoring the Impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

January 17, 2022

Honoring the Impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today JM Family Enterprises observes Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the annual celebration of the civil rights leader’s life and legacy. Through his powerful messages of hope and healing, Dr. King worked hard to build a society where equality would become a reality – and no longer a dream.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing our planned MLK Day of Service activities and look forward to hosting these in each of our business locations later in the year. In the meantime, in lieu of rolling up our sleeves and volunteering together in honor of our MLK Day of Service, we are making a $25,000 contribution to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). The UNCF is an American philanthropic organization that funds scholarships for black students and general scholarship funds for 37 private historically black colleges and universities.

At JM Family, treating every individual with respect and fairness is the foundation of our core values and culture. As we honor the words and work of Dr. King, we hope everyone is inspired to celebrate each other’s uniqueness and become champions of justice and equality today, and always.
