Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
The North Country Regional Volunteer Center located at the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. is remembering Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday January 20, 2014) by promoting volunteerism throughout Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence Counties.
The North Country Regional Volunteer Center (NCRVC) is offering 10 mini-grants worth up to $300. The mini-grants will be awarded to non-profit agencies, organizations, and groups with the purpose of doing projects that use volunteers to complete the task at hand. There must be a clear benefit to the community at large, a non-profit organization, or a person affected by an adverse situation.
It is important to note that one agency/group from each county will be awarded a mini-grant. If there is no application from one of the seven counties the award will be given to an agency in another county.
If you or your organization is interested in applying the application can be found at www.unitedwayadk.org, under the News Releases Tab, you can call 518-563-0028, or email Kathy Snow (Kathy@unitedwayadk.org)
The application deadline is January 10, 2014.
