Volunteer with United Way for Martin Luther King Day on January 16th, 2017!
For the seventeenth year, United Way NSV honors the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a community outreach event, hoping to share tools and information on local resources and assistance to the parts of the community that need the most help. United Way recruits local volunteers to help package and distribute donated items and informational material bags to families in the North End of Winchester. Donated items are sourced from Rubbermaid Products, area agencies, local non-profits and medical offices.
For MLK Day 2017, packaging will begin at 9:00AM at the Our Health Building, 329 N. Cameron St., Winchester, VA.
Distribution will immediatly follow packing, concluding by 12:00PM at various locations/neighborhoods in the North End.
The project honors the memory of Dr. King by recognizing his belief that “everybody can be great…because everybody can serve”
