On Monday, January 20th the AmeriCorps members that are serving for the City of Davenport both in our city departments and in the schools will be participating in the MLK Day of Service.

 

What is the MLK Day of Service?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.  The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

 

This is a great day to provide service and the AmeriCorps have come up with and an even better agency to help...  We are very excited to be hosting the 2014 MLK Day of Service - Kids Against Hunger  event at the Roosevelt Community Center on Monday, January 20th from 1-5:30 pm.  Volunteers will be joining the City of Davenport (IA) AmeriCorps members in packaging dry meals with the Kids Against Hunger - Quad Cities. These meals are sent throughout the world to states, nations and countries to feed the children and families. Our goal is to package 3000 meals to be sent out to these children and families.  The best part of this all is that anyone can do this (volunteers must be aged 5 or older to participate in this volunteer activity. Must be able to stand for a long period of time) ... we are so excited that we will be able to involve the campers from our Roosevelt school day out camp but we are still in need of volunteers for the afternoon.  We were hoping that your groups might be interested in joining us!  This event is registered on the DVC website for anyone who wants to volunteer. Click here to register, or just show up!
