MLK Day!

On January 15, 2018 AmeriCorps Cape Cod in cooperation with several local food pantries will be holding their annual Martin Luther King, Jr. day of service project. This year members have worked diligently to plan a Cape wide project focused on food security and hunger in the Cape Cod region. The heart of the project is a Cape wide food drive on January 15th, though bins have already been placed in several locations to ensure that we collect as many. On the day of the event we will have groups collecting donations at several local grocery stores. We will also have a group at our home base, inventorying and sorting the collected goods so they can easily be donated to local food pantries.

In addition to the food drive we will also be sending volunteers to help several local food pantries. Volunteers are crucial to the operation of food pantries. Our volunteers will be completing a number of different projects based on the needs of the pantries. These projects will be focused on helping the food pantries prepare for the spring season, a very early spring-cleaning.

Sign-in on the day of the event will take place at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School from 8:30 to 9:30. There will be a guest speaker to begin the event, as well as light refreshments.
