Each January, we join St. Paul’s Baptist Church to celebrate and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Together we sponsor community outreach service projects throughout the greater West Chester area. St. Paul’s partners with UCWC, other local churches, civic organizations, and community agencies to make a positive difference in our community.
Beginning January 1, volunteers are encouraged to review the list of available service projects and pre-register on-line HERE for their first and
second choices or interests. The event planners encourage volunteers to open themselves to volunteering on projects with people from other churches or organizations in order to explore and expand community relationships.
Each volunteer is also asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the event to support the food drive.
There will be a Rise Against Hunger food packing project (previously known as Stop Hunger Now) at UCWC.
Volunteers will gather at St. Paul’s Baptist Church at 8 am on Monday, January 21. 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 a reflections program to share the events of the day.
