Volunteers Honored on MLK Day
Wednesday, January 13, 2010 • Posted January 13, 2010

On January, 18, 2010, people of all ages and backgrounds will come together to improve lives, bridge social barriers, and to move our nation closer to the "Beloved Community" that Dr. King envisioned. Dr. Martin Luther King devoted his life’s work to causes of equality and social justice. He taught that through nonviolence and service to one another, problems such as hunger and homelessness, prejudice and discrimination can be overcome. Dr. King’s teachings can continue to guide us in addressing our nation’s most pressing needs—poverty, economic insecurity, job loss and education.

Volunteer with Americans across the nation on the 2010 King Day of Service and make a real difference in your community. 

Mason County RSVP partnered with local businesses to observe Martin Luther King Day by raising funds and collecting food for the Mason Ministerial Alliance Food Bank. If you would like to donate, you may leave food at the Mason Senior Center or Super S. There are also donations jars for monetary contributions at the following businesses: Short Stop, Nu-Way, Gigi’s, Zavala’s and Willow Creek.

Your donations will be greatly appreciated.
