Building Community Blog

On January 21, AmeriCorps members across Minnesota gathered in service to honor the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by serving at a different organization than their own service site. Each year, these events are sponsored by the InterCorps Council of Minnesota, and all the State, National, and VISTA programs have the opportunity to come together and make an impact.

This year, members were serving as volunteers doing activities such as: sorting and collecting donations, event support, serving food, and other various tasks to help our communities on and around MLK Day!

Dedications are one of the special pieces of Habitat's program. They help show the impact stable, affordable housing has on families that partner with us. They also give the opportunity to bring a community together to celebrate and "send the family off to success beyond their dreams," as Board Member Dan Shapiro wished one of the celebrated families this past week.

In September began the new AmeriCorps year, and with that always comes change. This year; however, brought more changes than just new members. Keep riding along through this blog to meet the current members and new roles this year has brought.
