Beginning January 1, volunteers are encouraged to review the list of available service projects at stpaulsbaptist.org and pre-register on-line for their first and second choices or interest. UCWC is specifically encouraged to find a team of five volunteers who are willing to visit the elderly at local nursing homes and a UCWC team willing to assist Ed Cohle with a grocery store food drive.
There will be a Stop Hunger Now food packing project at UCWC, but it will be smaller this year.
Each volunteer is asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the event to support the food drive. Volunteers will gather at St. Paul’s Baptist Church at 8:00 am Monday, January 15. There will be a short program sharing information about Dr. King’s life with service projects following. Volunteers are welcomed back to St, Paul’s for lunch and reflections on the events of the day.
Kids Book Collection
Anyone interested is encouraged to bring a NEW book for any age from Pre-K through fifth grade, by January 7 and give it Sandy Schaal or Shelly Case. The books will be distributed at the storytelling events on MLK Day.
