On Monday, January 18, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we were blessed with a group of about 50 AmeriCorps members who were providing a day of service. We all met in the basement of 511 N. Akard, and then after a short presentation about the project, they all got busy working. We had bags and boxes of clothes, children’s games, books, and toiletries that had been generously donated for the new residents of CityWalk. In addition, we needed 200 Welcome Home bags assembled.
It was a great day. The Reverend King’s memory was definitely honored by this awesome corps of volunteers all working together to make our community a better place for everyone.
