MLK Day of Service helping Veterans

New year, new food habits so I gathered up all the pasta and cans of corn and other things I am avoiding. Good stuff for others, not so good stuff for me. And I gathered food with a bunch of things in good working order like – the under sink wire sliding organizer I never never installed and that under cabinet work light I never took out of its package – to give to Volunteers Serving the Need on the Martin Luther King’s Day of Action.

It is, after all, supposed to be a “Day On” and not just a “Day Off” so I am going to try to do my part. I’ll be volunteering with them for a few hours, too, since they are such a new nonprofit and they serve local low-income veterans and widows of veterans with food bags.

Hope you get a chance to volunteer someone in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and if you happen to have an item or two to donate, swing on by to 1202 Salinas.

    Do the veterans have to show an American ID in order to grab a bag from your charitable offering?
