MLK, Jr. Day of Service Volunteer Opportunity To all students, faculty and staff who will be in Winchester in January: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 16, 2023, is considered a Day of Service for many community members. The Center for Civic Engagement will be sharing volunteer opportunities for that day as we learn about them. Here is the first one: The Winchester Rescue Mission, a local shelter for men and women experiencing homelessness at 435 N Cameron Street, would love to have volunteers on this day for the following times and activities:
9:00 AM-10:30 AM – community food distribution (4 individuals) help unload food donations, sort and package food boxes and carry boxes to guests’ cars
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM – community lunch (2 individuals) help prepare and serve a lunch for 40-50 meals (you will have other staff/volunteer help)
3:30 PM – 5:30 PM – community dinner (4 individuals) help prepare and serve a dinner for 80-90 meals (you will have other staff/volunteer help)
If you and your family and/or friends are interested in helping out at the Mission on January 16 (or any day!), please contact Lauren Clouse (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know by January 6 how/when you can help.
