About The Opportunity: Every year, AmeriCorps Cape Cod hosts a signature event called MLK Day of Service, in which MLK Day is seen as a "Day On" rather than a "Day off" for AmeriCorps. This year, MLK Day of Service will be held at the Sturgis Charter School community space (529 Main Street) in downtown Hyannis from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on January 15, 2024. This year’s event will focus on the issue of homelessness here on the Cape. There will be a donation drive where people can drop off items such as bedding, personal care products, and home essentials that will go out to people in need. There will also be a community lunch and a resource fair with various booths providing information on housing, jobs, and food assistance. We are looking for volunteers outside our organization to assist us with food service for the community lunch, accepting and inventorying donations for the drive, and participant registration. Please fill out the form below if you are interested. Contact Grace Vachon at grace.vachon@capecod.gov with any questions or concerns. https://barnstablecounty.formstack.com/forms/2024_mlk_day_of_service_volunteer_registration_form
