The husband of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is urging Americans to volunteer in their communities on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

"Many of you have asked how you can help and how you can honor the memory of those who were wounded or lost their lives. What united the victims of the tragedy on Saturday was service – they volunteered in church or at soup kitchens, worked in government, and tended to their communities. On behalf of Gabby and our family, I ask that you consider honoring their commitment to service by dedicating a few hours on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, this Monday, January 17th, to volunteer in your community," Mark Kelly said in a statement distributed by the Giffords for Congress campaign.
