GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Is one of your goals for 2014 to volunteer and be more involved in your community?
You can get the first month of the new year off to a great start by getting involved with the Volunteer Center of Greensboro (TVC).
Every year in the January, the nonprofit organizes A Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King. This year, TVC decided to host a month-long celebration of service to "honor Dr. King's legacy and commitment to transforming our nation."
TVC has these activities currently scheduled:
January 11: Partners Ending Homelessness: Poverty Simulation 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
- January 20: MLK Day of Service at Four Seasons Towne Center 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
- January 23: Partners Ending Homelessness: Poverty Simulation 4 p.m. -7 p.m.
- January 29: Partners Ending Homelessness: Point-In-Time Count 8 a.m- 8.p.m.
- Veteran's Benefits Fair with Servant Center TBD
The TVC says they are also in the process of partnering with other nonprofit organizations to create MLK action centers. These centers will be promoted throughout the month of January and will be able to take 10-20 people at a given time, allowing large groups to volunteer together.
America's Sunday Suppers will also be promoted in January by TVC in Guilford County, local churches, and other community groups.
If you would like to volunteer for one of the service projects, to host a Sunday supper, or participate in the MLK Day of Service, call the TVC at (336) 373-1633 or email Christopher Sifford, Director of Volunteers at Christopher@volunteergso.org.
