Serving for A Day On Not A Day Off!

On Monday, January 21, MHYC staff, Corpsmembers and community volunteers joined forces with the Salvation Army Crossroads Shelter to serve on the MLK National Service Day. One Corpsmember reflected on the day saying

“I believe it is important to give back on this day.  When I think of Martin Luther King, Jr., the first thought that comes to mind is service.  By helping meet the needs of those in our community, we are continuing his work.”

Our dedicated group worked on many projects, including sorting food donations, general building maintenance and cleaning, as well as providing a fresh coat of paint throughout the shelter.

Corpsmember Johnny said “Painting the library was hard work, but working with my friends and knowing that we were contributing to a bigger cause made it all worth it.”
