Martin Luther King Day: A Day on of Service

MLK Day of Service in Lynn

For many people Monday, January 16th 2012 was not just another day off but rather a day on of service.  That day SCI Americorps Members were involved in various Martin Luther King (MLK) Day projects throughout the area.  At the MLK Day of Service in Lynn, volunteers worked on projects at the YMCA and Lynn Shelter Association, while also collecting food, school supplies and winter wear.  Check out the SCI Lynn blog to read more about this event:  http://scilynn.org/taxonomy/term/384.  While on January 17th, the Woburn Youth Council held a night of service and collected canned goods at the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn.  Also in Woburn, AmeriCorps Members held a letter writing campaign for those serving in the armed forces.  A write up on this event can be found at:  http://sciwoburn.org/content/letter-writing-campaign-troops-through-operation-gratitude.  Overall, it's clear that AmeriCorps Members turned this day off into an opportunity for public action and service.
