MLK Day of Service 2018

Join us for the MLK Day of service on Monday, January 15th, 2018!

Through a partnership with the AmeriCorps VISTA program, The City of Winooski provides an annual opportunity to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. through community service opportunities.

This year, we encourage community members to sign up for one of these volunteer activities:

• Build a little free library / 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Through a generous donation and partnership with ReSource, we’ll have materials available to build little free libraries at the Winooski Fire Department building (120 Main Street, Winooski VT 05404) for future distribution.

• Revamp the Winooski Food Shelf / 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Our friends at the Winooski Food Shelf (24 West Allen Street, Winooski VT 05404) need help with a clean-up and reorganization effort to keep their program running well.

• Make greeting cards for military veterans / 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Join us at the Winooski Senior Center (123 Barlow Street, Winooski VT 05404) to make greeting cards for military veterans and their families. Volunteers will provide materials and company for this crafty project.

• Restock a community room library at a Winooski Housing Authority building / 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Help replenish community room libraries with new reading materials at multiple senior living buildings around Winooski.

• Shovelling snow around fire hydrants / 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Help the Winooski Fire Department by clearing blocked fire hydrants around the City ensuring clear access to an important Public Safety resource.
