MLK 2017 Day of Service

12-1750-mlk-web-2.pngSign Up Now!

For this year's MLK Day of Service, like last year, we've decided to do 10 smaller projects rather than one big project.  Eight of the ten projects will be done on Saturday, January 14th  and two projects will be done on Monday, January 16th. Please read the details about each project HERE (or see below) to determine which of the 10 projects is best for you, then click HERE to sign-up for a project.

 Sign Up Now!

If you are signing up people other than yourself, please make sure they are aware so they don’t also sign-up (to ensure there are no "duplicate names/sign-ups”).  Please sign-up/submit names for any volunteers over the age of 11.

 

Finally, for one our projects ("There With Care": Preparing Cleaning Care Kits), we are doing a cleaning products collection at this Sunday's Congregational service.  We are ask all HOPE volunteers to bring any or all of the following items to Westminster HS this Sunday:

  • Laundry Detergent (close to 100 ounces)
  • Disinfecting Wipes (Clorox or any brand)
  • All Purpose Cleaning Spray (like Lysol or 409)

Look for the HOPE banner or one of our HOPE Scouts in the lobby to turn in these items.

 

Please feel free to call the Project Leads/Contacts, listed above, if you have any questions about these projects.

 

Thanks in advance for your service,

Andre & Anita Pearson, Co-Directors
